Alternate list

Hello to everybody,
I am new to this list, I am starting ti develop web sites using Radiant
0.5.2 and I have one question.
I need to create a list of articles using two alternate styles for odd
or even members of the list.
I mean something like this:

Post 1
Post 2
Post 3
... Using children:each I got all posts with the same style, I tried to create a children_alternate tag, but I think I haven't understood how radius tags works. I created a each_odd and a each_even tag, but using them I get all even post grouped together and all even posts grouped together not in alternate style. Is there a way to obtain what I need? If I am not wrong radius computes the block passed to it and give back the result and the block is the code between for example the open and the close "children:each" tag. Is it right? So it should be better to pass some option to each to obtain an alternate style... or not?

Thanks in advance

0.6/Mental has the <r:cycle /> tag. It could easily be backported to
0.5.2 as it doesn’t use anything special in 0.6/Mental.
