Thanks for testing it out.

The inherent problem is that I get a string, and not a node-set,
needed by count(). David, ultimately the value in the variable
obtained through value-of is not a node or a node set. Is there a way
you think, I can get the count() fetch me the number of 'dd' elements
using xalan-c processor ?
