Michael & Vasu -

Thanks, I finally found documentation that said the
same.  I just now got the emails, sorry for the
delayed response.

OK.  I am building my own photogallery.  As a side,
yes, I know it's all been done before.  But hey, I
want it my way!  Besides, I am learning.

Requirements (wishes)
a) 1 datafile per gallery called galleryname.xml(which
could contain 200 images or more if desired).
b) only 15 (3 rows x 5 columns) thumbs shown on the
index at a time.
c) user sees a choice of "Pages 1 2 3 4 5" and so on
d) when s/he presses the link for page 2, it shows the
next 15 thumbs, or presses 3 it shows thumbs 31-45
e) when clicked on a thumb, then browser directed to
image.xml w/ image.xsl w/ image.css.  I only want 1
image.xml file (i may have 50 galleries, i only want 1
image.xml file) which can dynamically
(client-side)figure which image to display, perhaps
based on URL. (I do not want a file with every image i
have in it.)
f) no popup windows, no flash, prefer not to use DOM
either. I'd like to stick to XML/XSLT/JavaScript.

So, in a nutshell, i was hoping my index.xml could
parse the url, update $page, and use-- 
<xml:for-each select="image[position() > $row * $col *
($page - 1) and position() < $row * $col * $page]"> 

Thanks for any help and suggestions!
