I've got a quite simple problem. I've tested a lot, but didn't get the 
solution.So I hope you give me a hint.

In a template I calculate a bgcolor depending on position:
<xsl:template match="eintrag">
  <xsl:variable name="color"> 
      <xsl:when test="(position() mod 2) &gt; 0">#C0C0C0</xsl:when>  
     <xsl:apply-templates select="nr"/> 
     <xsl:apply-templates select="km"/>
   <!-- ... -->

I need to use the variable in the applied templates. Here is an example:
<xsl:template match="nr">
  <td bgcolor="{$color}"> 
    <xsl:value-of select="."/>

How can I solve this? I can't calculate the color global... Can I solve 
this with params instead of varialbes? I tried but didn't get it.

Best regards
