adding a counter?

Firstable I would like to thank all the mp3tag team for making such a great work,
I am trying to make an exporte code with a counter, this is what I have:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="de">
    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Mp3tag -" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>Mp3tag - File Overview</title>
    <style type="text/css"><!--
        h1 { font-family: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt; color: #000 }
        body { font-family: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 8pt; background: #fff }
        table, tr, td { font-family: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 9pt; color: #000; }
        a:link, a:visited, a:active { text-decoration: none; color: #03f; }
        a:hover { text-decoration: none; color: #f03; }
        .title { font-weight: bold; padding: 7px; margin: 0px; color: #000; }
        .odd { background-color: #ccc; }
    <h1>Mp3tag - File Overview</h1>
            <th class="title">No.</th>
            <th class="title">Title</th>
            <th class="title">Artist</th>
            <th class="title">Genre</th>
            <th class="title">Length</th>
            <th class="title">BitRate</th>

            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)></td>
            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%title%</td>
            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%artist%</td>
            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%genre%</td>
            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%_length%</td>
            <td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%_bitrate% kBit/s</td>


what should I put in the first

so I can have counter, in the "No."

I just want a simple counter of the songs, 1,2,3,4,5,6




What is the problem with %_counter%?

<td$if($odd(%_counter%), class="odd",)>%_counter%</td>
