Perhaps you think it's natural, but in (almost) any procedural language, the conditional processing comes *outside* the assignment. This makes more sense to me, and this is why I have a hard time with XSL. :)

Instead of "if x is a, assign c to y, if x is b, assign d to y" it's "assign y a value: if x is a, then c, if x is b, then d".

I'll get it eventually though. :)

because elements scope variable bindings in XSL.
This is a FAQ you want the choose inside the variable, not the other way
round. (This is anyway the more natural way, you want to define $rowstyle
with a value depending on some condition)
