3. Apart from the above "tracing output" a template will function in
almost the same way -- one notable requirement will be to reference any
nodes of the source xml document through a global variable, that has
been assigned the root node of the source document.

4. When the transformation has been performed, the RTF will contain all
"normal output" plus all "tracing output". The count of the nodes of
the "tracing output" having a particular name will be the count of
times a particular template was called.

5. To produce only the "normal output", the RTF should be finally
