As an extension of the position() of parent question from digest 480,
I have a challenge.  How can a template be created, such that it will 
print out the complete path of current node from the root?  As an

    <C/> <--- calling a template with current() here...

will yield


Where the first part is the element name and the second part is it's
relative position with respect to all other nodes at the same level.

I know I would need to create a named template that recurses passing
the parent to next invocation of template.  I also know the end case
is when the current node is the root.    

To print the index I think I would use David Carlisles comment on
thread yesterday..

  <xsl:value-of select="1+count(../preceding-sibling::*)"/>
