What I want to do is set up a loop (from 1 to 9), and then be able to access
parts of nodes that correspond to this loop.

I don't remember who posted this, but it should work:

	<!-- put this in an existing template -->
	<xsl:call-template name="loop">
    <xsl:with-param name="start-val" select="'1'"/>
    <xsl:with-param name="end-val" select="'10'"/>
<!-- loops from $start-val to $end-val with a step value of
<xsl:template name="loop">
  <xsl:param name="start-val" select="'0'"/>
  <xsl:param name="end-val" select="'0'"/>
  <xsl:param name="increment" select="'1'"/>

    <xsl:if test="$start-val &lt;= $end-val">

		<!-- do stuff here, i just print out the number -->
		VALUE:    <xsl:value-of select="$start-val"/>

    <!-- recurse -->
    <xsl:call-template name="loop">
      <xsl:with-param name="start-val" select="$start-val + $increment"/>
      <xsl:with-param name="increment" select="$increment"/>
      <xsl:with-param name="end-val" select="$end-val"/>
One side point:
 David Carlisle reminds:
  <xsl:param name="start-val" select="'0'"/>
                                      ^ ^
you are relying on the implicit coercion from string to number here,
simpler to give the number directly

   <xsl:param name="start-val" select="0"/>

Anyways, that should get you started.
