    Line break with XSLT

    Hello,

    I have successfully applied a XSLT stylesheet to an XML document and got pictures to show up and was able to link to larger images.

    My issue is I need it to set a line break after a set of 6 pictures prints to the browser. There is a node right before the photos node called instance. I've been trying to insert a <br /> there, but with no success.

    Can anyone give any advice?

    Thanks,

    Hello, I modify your code because it was so verbose, all you had to do was check the position() function

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    	<xsl:template match="/">
    		<html>
    			<head>
    				<title>Wild Earth: Deep Ocean Safari</title>
    			</head>
    			
    			<body style="background-color:#003300">
    				<xsl:for-each select="main/user/photos/photo">
    					
    					<a href="{url}">
    						<img style="border:0; margin:5px; width:10&#37;; height:10%;" src="{url}"></img>
    					</a>
    <xsl:if test="position() mod 6 = 0">
    						<br/>
    					</xsl:if>
    				</xsl:for-each>
    			</body>
    		</html>
    	</xsl:template>
    </xsl:stylesheet>

    Cheers, John Bampton.

    Works like a charm!

    Thanks so much. I just learned XSLT existed yesterday around noon, so I really appreciate the help
