Auto-generating text to say "Figure 1", "Figure 2", "Figure 3" is easy:
  <xsl:number count="*[contains(@class, ' figure ')]"/>
but I need my flowchart numbering to be independent, and auto-generate
"Figure 1", "Flowchart 1", "Figure 2".  I sort of want to say
  <xsl:number count="*[contains(@class, ' figure ')]
              except *[contains(@class, ' flowchart ')]"/>
only set difference doesn't work in xsl:number/@count, even in XSLT 2.0.

Have you tried:

count="*[contains(@class,' figure ') and not(contains(@class,' flowchart '))]"

That would seem to me to mimic what you were trying to say (though I don't know how you plan to do your numbering if one construct has both properties).

I hope this helps.
