this works for alternating row colors....

<xsl:for-each select="something">
	<tr><xsl:if test="position() mod 2 = 0"><xsl:attribute
name="style">background-color: #cccccc</xsl:attribute></xsl:if>
		<td>	row data here</td>

Subject: [xsl] how do you redefine a variable

I'm trying to colour my table rows, either one colour or another.

I thought I'd do something similar to how I do it ASP.

<xsl:variable name="rowCounter">1</xsl:variable>
<xsl:for-each select="">
    <xsl:when test="$rowCounter = 1">
      <xsl:variable name="bgcolor">red</xsl:variable>
      <xsl:variable name="rowCounter">0</xsl:variable>
      <xsl:variable name="bgcolor">blue</xsl:variable>
      <xsl:variable name="rowCounter">1</xsl:variable>

BUT, it won't let me reallocate $rowCounter as it's already defined. So, how
could I do this using the wonders of XSL. I thought about getting the
position() value, and doing something with this, but it would ultimately
need to be a 0 or 1 (or 1 or 2 if that's easier). Is there an If
odd(position()), if even(position()) syntax I could use?

Thanks for now.....
