Hello,

I am trying to display the last 4 items of a product list using XSLT. So far I have this:

<xsl:for-each select="(//product) [position() &lt; 5]">
            <xsl:sort select="position()" data-type="number" order="descending"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="@Product"/>

This displays the first 4 items not the last 4 items. What am I doing wrong?

for-each selects a set of nodes,
the sort happens on the selected set

if you need to just have the final four products
<xsl:for-each select="(//product) [position() &gt; count(//product) - 5]">
(I recommend to put the count in a variable first)
