So v1 now is a temporary document containg a deep copy of the child nodes of the content element(s). With your sample document the contents is then

                               <note id="1">text</note>

	<xsl:template match="note">
		The note at /article/content/para/note reads:
		ancestors="<xsl:value-of select="count(ancestor::*)"/>"
		preceding="<xsl:value-of select="count(preceding::*)"/>"
		contentNum="<xsl:value-of select="count(preceding::content)"/>"
		numberTest="<xsl:number level="any" count="content"/>"

and that way the template for 'note' elements outputs

		The note at /article/content/para/note reads:

So the template is applied to a copy of the original para element.
