XSLT doesn't have an assignment statement, if you want to understand why,
read Chapter 8 of my XSLT Programmer's Reference.

You can achieve nearly all numbering requirements using either
<xsl:number/>, count(), or position(). In the rare cases where these aren't
adequate, you can achieve the required effect using a two-stage
transformation, or a recursive template that calls itself with a parameter:

<xsl:with-param name="i" select="$i+1"/>
