yes but the current node inside the [] is why the . works, so the field
would refer to a field child of a field, probably you want to know the
value of a later field something like


on the other hand hand you might want to use keys for this ('cause it's
simpler and faster)

<xs:key name="x" match="field[@column=3]" use="."/>

so now <xsl:value of select="count(key('x','A'))"/>
tells you how many A's there are.

<xsl:for-each select="//field[@column=3][count(.|key('x',.)[1])=1]">
There are <xsl:value of select="count(key('x',.))"/> fields in column3
  with value <xsl:value-of select="."/>

will loop through all the distinct examples.
