Somewhen earlier, someone posted a link to a diagram freeware program that
saves its data in XML.
I accidentally deleted that message..
If you would be so kind to post it again?

Hi Jayaranga,
It is a little bit difficult to understand what maximum node count (of
what?) you
need and for what purposes.

I'm assuming here that you need a large repository of "raw nodes" upon which
build a non-recursive loop (the method of Wendell Piez).

The answer is that you may include in your stylesheet very large xml
documents and
achieve as big a count as you may need.

For more information see:

Any stuff can be included under a namespace-uri, different from
the standard XSLT namespace-uri, like this:

<xsl:stylesheet version='1.0'

    <!-- Hamlet goes here -->

  <!-- the rest of the stylesheet -->

As it can be seen, I included Jon Bosak's xml version of "Hamlet"
The following small template will return the number of nodes
(the maximum recursion depth that can be avoided) we can now use
to organise non-recursive loops:

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:variable name="st" select="document('')"/>
  <xsl:value-of select=" count($st//node() | $st//@* | $st//namespace::*)"/>

For the above stylesheet this number is: 32032.
As some people noted, this solution could be called an ugly one.
Or, to quote an xml fragment from our stylesheet,

  <LINE>Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. </LINE>

However, it is much more ugly to watch the slow and painful agony
of IIS crashing only because we used a beautiful, deep recursive processing.

Hope this helped.
