If you just want a counter, try something like this:

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:call-template name="counter">
		<xsl:with-param name="i">1</xsl:with-param>

<xsl:template name="counter">
	<xsl:param name="i"/>
	<!-- do something -->
	<xsl:if test="not($i > 10)">
		<xsl:call-template name="counter">
			<xsl:with-param name="i"><xsl:value-of select="$i +

Basically, you are recursively calling a named template with a parameter;
i.e. you can do a "for i = 1 to x" loop.

Hopefully this should be enough to get you going...
