Concerning the messages of Marsh and Barre, surely all one needs to do is
process the given XML document with an architecturally aware process, where <name>, and
<status> inherit from the same element in the architectural DTD, and have XSL report the child number
in the transformed document. Or will one not be allowed to transform documents before
styling them?

		Imagine I have the following XML instance :

		<?xml version="1.0"?>

		    <name>a name</name>
		    <status>a status</status>
		    <name>a name</name>

		I want to get something like :

		1 description
		1.1 document
		1.1.1 name
		1.1.2 status
		1.1.3 name

		'path(this)' can't give me what I want.
		path gives me :
		1 description
		1.1 document
		1.1.1 name
		1.1.1 status  // <= that's not what I want

		I can't figure out how to do that. Is there any other
solution ?

		Note : I use MSXSL.Exe.
