it is a bit different than in most other languages but try the other way round, selecting only the value of the variable depending on the condition

<xsl:variable name="pages">
<xsl:when test="leftover &gt; 0">
<xsl:value-of select="($totalitems - $leftover) div $pagesize + 1"/>
<xsl:value-of select="($totalitems - $leftover) div $pagesize"/>
