Wherever you see something like

<xsl:for-each select="x/y/z">
  <xsl:if test="a = b">
    ... something ...
  </xsl:if>
</xsl:for-each>

it can be replaced by

<xsl:for-each select="x/y/z[a = b]">
    ... something ...
</xsl:for-each>

The only difference is that it changes the values of position() and last() to reflect the items you are actually processing.
