It seems like this question is answered all the time, buy all my searchs seem to point me to XQuery and I don't want to use XQuery. In fact, for this purpose it would be most convenient to use the MSXSL processor, so we are talking XSLT 1.0.

I have captured a node in an element:
<xsl:variable name="max-node" select="descendant::*[name()= 'system' or name()= 'component'][position()=last()]" />

Now I need to know the number of ancestors this node has. What XPath expression will give me this? Thanks.
