Adding a class to every other item

Can I add a class to every odd item?

You want to add a class to every other item in Perch so you can style it using CSS.

You can use the perch:every tag to achieve this.

<li<perch:every count="2"> class="odd"</perch:every>> ... </li>

While needing to add classes for presentational purposes is becoming less of a requirement as more browsers support CSS3 selectors such as nth-child, it is worth remembering that you could use this technique to include additional markup or anything else you want to do with alternate items.
