I'm guessing that his stylesheet had a generic <xsl:apply-templates/>,
and he was getting 2, 4, 6, 8, etc... the position including the
whitespace text nodes.


Use xsl:number, it'll usually give you exactly what you're looking for.

Yu don't say waht is wrong with the code that you posted 9if the
template for root did xsl:appy-templates select="item"/> you'd probably
get the number you wanted. position() works the same way in
aapply-templates as it does in for-each, in both cases the number is
essentially unrelated to the position of teh node in the input, although
in particular cases it will be the same. <xsl:number/> is a safer way of
generating mumbers in the utput.
