I have trouble getting this to work with the XSL. This is an example on the
xml I have to work with

I want to list all services names. I managed to solve it when I only had one
<pack> tag, but now I can have several pack-tags. Does someone know how to
get a nice table from this data?

At the point where you are at the parent element of <pack> the pseudo-code would be the following:

For each in "pack/service": #this XPath addr selects all service grandchildren
when position() mod 2 = 0
Add black background attribute
Add white background attribute
Add content of <tr> element

Note that in the above all service grandchildren are treated as a single set, so the pack boundaries do not interfere with the positioning of the members of the set relative to each other.

Also ensure that you add any attributes to a result element *before* you add any content to the row.

I hope this helps.
