Hi guys,
I need suggestions for a XSL related problem.

I have a XML which contains employment history of users. There can be multiple records depending upon users history.
On this XML, a XSL file is applied. For each of the employment records , different styles are to be applied. Hence I am retrieving the data in <xsl:for-each>. For 1st record if <div class="class1"> is applied , for 2nd record <div class="class2"> should be applied and hence forth.. How can i dynamically do this as number of records is not known before..

Thanks in adavance

Well, first you look it up to find out more about it. Then you ask specific questions about it if you don't see how it would help you solve that question.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
