Hi All

I have this XSL code, but I am trying to get it so every other row is
light grey and the ones in between are white. I want the headers to be anjother colour all together.

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl">
<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
  <body>
    <table border="2" bgcolor="yellow">
      <tr>
        <th>OrderNum</th>
        <th>Date</th>
      </tr>
      <xsl:for-each select="ExportQuery/ELEC01_SalesOrdersWaitingParts[NotEnoughStock='TRUE']">
                <tr>
        <td class="class"><xsl:value-of select="OrderHed_OrderNum"/></td>
                <td class="class"><xsl:value-of select="OrderHed_OrderDate"/></td>
                </tr>
      </xsl:for-each>
    </table>
  </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

hallo

not use for_each.
for-each is for node set
when you have a big xml file to sort or display by for-each than many memory is use in your pc

a template disccribt what is doing when the parser found the node
in this example
<xsl:apply-templates select="employee"/>

think not as programmer language think in xslt


i make a sample to show you how it works
xml to test
