A useful technique...

1. In your CSS file, define odd & even rows as follows:
.row0  { color: #FFFFFF; }
.row1  { color: #FFD0FF; }

2. In your XSL stylesheet:

<xsl:for-each select="item">
	<tr class="row{(position() mod 2)}">...</tr>

The usual way to handle such requirements is with code such as this:

<xsl:for-each select="item">
   <xsl:when test="position() mod 2 = 0">...</xsl:when>

Withing the for-each, the total number of items is available as the result
of the function last().

Subject: [xsl] counting in for each

I am making a list with "for each" and if the list is 1 or 3 items it should
change the state of display. And I would also like to change the Icon
depending on how many objects there object 1 has icon 1...object 2
icon 2

So my question. Is it possible to count how many Items there are in a node?
And do I know where I am in a for each?

Thanks to all!
