If you did that, then you would have to make an empty template for the complementary set of
cityInstal elements, like so:

<xsl:template match="cityInstal[position() mod 2 = 0]" />

so that these elements would produce no output. Is that more efficient? I don't know. I may
depend on how the XSLT engine is implemented or, depending on the number of nodes to be processed,
the difference may be too small to notice. Does an elephant with a flea on his back weigh
more than the same elephant without the flea?

I've got the same setup, except that I've got Java 1.5.0_06, but I can't imagine that makes
a difference. Here's the entire stylesheet. Try it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
  <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />
  <xsl:strip-space elements="*" />

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:apply-templates />
  <xsl:template match="genericSiteDoc">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  <xsl:template match="cityInstal">
    <xsl:if test="position() mod 2 =1">
      	<fo:table-cell><fo:block><xsl:value-of select="." /></fo:block></fo:table-cell>
      	<fo:table-cell><fo:block><xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::cityInstal[1]"
