## [xsl] Calculating cumulative values

2007-02-03 14:43:45
```Hello,

Here is a tricky (to me) problem that requires looping over several sets and
calculating cumulative values (y2) from x and y1.  That is, for each x, set
y2 to be equal to the cumulative value of y1 as shown in the example output
below.

I made my best attempt with the stylesheet below, which I know is quite
incorrect but wanted to show I did actually try to solve the problem.  I am
now bogged down with the use of the variable element.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,

Simon
