Thanks to Thomas's help, I've been making my way up the learning curve.

My TEI xml has empty lb elements indicating lines in the original and
corresponding lb elements in the translation. I'd like to be able to
set these numbers in the margin so that readers may coordinate the
lineation. So far I have this:

\startxmlsetups xml:lb

\defineinmargin [lineNumbers] [outer] [normal]

which works, but I'd like to be able to set only every fifth or tenth
line number. Is there a way to perform some arithmetic on the value of
the n attribute and then execute \lineNumbers accordingly?

for example:

if n%5 == 0 then \lineNumbers else ignore <lb>
