The simplest (to understand) way is to have an xsl:variable containing
a sufficiently long string of spaces. Then take the exact number of
spaces using the substring() function.

Another way (when one doesn't know the maximum possible number of
spaces that will be needed) is to use a recursive named template --
e.g. one from exslt, or this one:

Or use the "iter" template from the FXSL library.

The last solution is the most generic and can be used to implement any
iteration of the type "Do something N times".

Hope this helped.
