Greetings Leigh, I would agree that there are cases where styling 
dependent on the value would be useful. A situation I have encountered is 
the need to style negative numbers differently to positive numbers.

Regards, Roland

RE: Styling based on instance data

Thank you.  I am using the word "selected" in a confusing way here.
I didn't mean the thing that is expressible using the proposed CSS3
pseudo-element ::repeat-index, but instead an application-specific
definition of selected, which in my example below is dependent on the
value of an attribute on the repeated node.

I think Chiba lets you do this by preprocessing and exposing this detail

in a css hookable way.

<xf:repeat xf:appearance="full"...>
<table class="compact-repeat valid | invalid readonly |
readwrite optional | required">
<tr class="repeat-item"> (has additional 'repeat-index' here
when selected)

sorry this doesnt help you with pure a xform, but then I guess with a 
pure xforms there is no guarantee that the platform that supports xforms

also supports css, or anything else you might be using.
