I'm trying to get the sum of a purchase order, which seems simple, but I
can't find an easy solution.

Consider the following XML:


I was trying to do something along these lines:

<xsl:template match="order">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="item"/>
	<b>Total price: <xsl:value-of select="sum(item/price *

To get a total amount for the entire order.

But that gives the following error.  

	Can not convert #NUMBER to a NodeList!

Before I go down the (seemingly too complex) recursive loop approach, I was
wondering if anyone else had another idea.
