Check out the XPath function count(). I seem to remember you're using
IE5 MSXML1, so it may be called something else.

The following should do the trick.

<td valign="center" colspan="{count(*)}"> ... </td>

That depends what you want the output to look like. You
can count the two element types separately.

<td valign="center"
    colspan="{count(upper-left) + count(mh)}"> ... </td>
