So, you have an input something like


and you want the output to include the total price; but your stylesheet
knows nothing about the element names?

With a schema-aware XSLT 2.0 stylesheet you can achieve this as follows:

<xsl:template match="*">
  <!-- process each of the children, then: -->
  <xsl:for-each-group select="*/*" group-by="node-name(.)">  <!-- group the
grandchildren by name -->
    <xsl:if test="count(current-group()) gt 1 and 
                  every $x in current-group() satisfies $x instance of
element(*, xs:decimal)">
      <total for="{current-grouping-key()}">
         <xsl:value-of select="sum($x)"/>

In practice, I don't think I would try to drive this entirely from the
schema type definitions. I think I would also set up some kind of
configuration file that says which elements you want to total, average, and
so on.
