This is not possible in XForms 1.0. One solution for future
XForms versions would be to extend the repeat semantics
and define something like "up" and "down" next to "before"
and "after" as parameters when inserting. With "down"
one could say to insert a nodeset not just next to the
selected nodeset, but to nest inside a nodeset at a given
point, which would, as far as I can see it, solve your problem.

 I  'm working about the faisability study to translate ICS forms (defnned
by ETSI) as XForms.
My first question is : how to create recurive formes?
As an exemple, I supose the model attached to my representation is somethig
like

...
<paragraph id="id1" title="Title1">
    <paragraph "id="id11" title ="paragrah 1.1">
    <table>
        <tablecontent id="t1" title="Table to be filled in">
         ... many fiield to fill in ...
        </tablecontent>
   </table>
   <paragraph id="level3" title="paragraph 3th level>
        <table id="t2 title="to be filled in 2"> ...</table>
        <table id="t3 title="to be filled in 2"> ...</table>
  </paragraph>
</paragraph.>
</paragraph>

I need to create a Form to recursivly generate the hierarchy of paragraphs
and , of course, the tables...
I don't know the exact deep of this tree...
I try using <xforms:repeat > and <xforms:index> but at this time, I can't
obtain a correct result.

Cane everyone help me?

Thanks
