There's no direct way in XSLT of summing an expression over a node-set,
unless the expression in question is the string-value of the nodes. It needs
a recursive named template.

As usual, there's a saxon extension function that will do it:

 saxon:sum(.//text(), saxon:expression("string-length(.)"))
