Thanks guys.

I would have thought there'd be some really noddy way to do this.
Sometimes xsl is so damned frustrating and so incomprehensible to your
bog standard programmer. Ah well.

I've decided that as there is only ever a max possible no of clients of
4, I'll just do it by if statements.

Thanks anyway.

You've hit a case where it's not a grouping problem or the like.
There's probably a simpler way to do it, but worse case scenario you can
do a recursive template:

<xsl:call-template name="printSigBlock"> <xsl:with-param
name="countOfSigs" select="noofclients" /> </xsl:call-template>

<xsl:template name="printSigBlock">
<xsl:with-param name="countOfSigs" />
<fo:block font-family="Helvetica" font-size="12pt"
 white-space-collapse="false" space-after="0.05pt"><fo:leader
 font-family="Helvetica" font-size="12pt" white-space-collapse="false"
 leader-pattern="space"/></fo:block><fo:block font-family="Helvetica"
 leader-length="36pt"/>Date________________ </fo:block></xsl:for****>
<xsl:if test="$countOfSigs -1 > 0"> <xsl:call-template
name="printSigBlock" select="$countOfSigs -1" /> </xsl:template>

That's the best I can come up with off the top of my head.  There might
be a better way to do it in XSLT 2.0.  There also might be some other
