Hi Kenny,

Presumably the recursive template that creates the three td elements is inside the template that creates the tr elements. (I don't know how else you'd do it. ;-)

If so, each time the "inner" template is called (by an iteration of the "outer" template), you can pass a parameter through to carry the count of the outer iteration.

Does that make sense?

<xsl:template name="outer">
  <xsl:param name="count" select="0"/>
  <xsl:call-template name="inner">
    <xsl:with-param name="outer-count" select="$count"/>
  <xsl:if test="$count &lt; $max-count)">
    <xsl:call-template name="outer">
      <xsl:with-param name="count" select="$count + 1"/>

I hope I understood the question....

A recursive template is generating N=4 <tr> and another inline recursive
template is generating n=3 <td> and so far I have no problems. But when it
comes to the attribute values of <td name="?"/> I really do not know what to
do since the @name of <td> is generated on the fly and after all <tr> are
generated. As shown in the result tree below the @name of <td> always
follows the @no of <tr>.

So my simple question is how to generate @name values on the fly?

This is the result tree I need:

<tr no="0">
    <td name="0"/>
    <td name="0"/>
    <td name="0"/>
<tr no="1">
    <td name="1"/>
    <td name="1"/>
    <td name="1"/>
<tr no="2">
    <td name="2"/>
    <td name="2"/>
    <td name="2"/>
<tr no="3">
    <td name="3"/>
    <td name="3"/>
    <td name="3"/>

Thanks, Kenny Bogoe
