[xsl] dereferencing count() within comparison test

Dear all,

I have a problem dereferencing the value of the count() function. Testing shows that count() evaluates to 5, and that $paramCount evaluates to 1 in the following code snippet. The loop is not enetered into, however.

<xsl:when test="$paramCount &lt; number(count(exsl:node-set($A)/derivedType)+1) ">

I can copy and paste the syntax from "(count(exsl" into a select and find out that it is indeed 5, but putting it together with the "&lt;" comparison seems to make it non-numeric. Could some one please tell me why?

Thanks a lot,

Mr Andrew Maclean
