Lets limit the rows to 100 than 1 million.  It will generate 10 pages.
What will be the best way to generate html pages using saxon?

Well you could use position() mod 10=1 to get every tenth row, and then
apply-templates to each of the following 9 siblings BUT......

...with 1 million rows you will probably be waiting a while for the
document to load into memory, so you would be better of writing a sax
filter and processing only 100 rows at a time (and then rebuilding the
result), or using something like STX which can transform the xml as its
read in.
