Default document node order vs sort node order.

So I am grouping nodes by predicate on an attribute and sorted the nodes based on another attribute. I put these nodes into lines in a table. I want to have the lines in the table have alternating background colors. When I use xsl:number that returns the document order # of the node but what I want is the number of the node in the grouped & sorted order - otherwise the colors don't alternate they are just lumped together in pre-sorted/pre-grouped order.

How do I go about that?

Here is the grouping example,

<th>Method Stats</th>
<xsl:apply-templates select="Metric[Values/@per='method']">
     <xsl:sort select="Values/@total" data-type="number" order="descending"/>

try the position() function instead, it reflects the sorted order. I assume you're trying to do something like this:
<xsl:element name="tr">
<xsl:if test="position() mod 2 = 0">
   <xsl:attribute name="class">even</xsl:attribute>
