I am attempting to write a stylesheet which will be used to count the number of nodes in a document. However, I need to be able to pass the nodes which I want to be counted in to the stylesheet as a parameter ($nodeName). Obviously, I cannot use count($nodeName), since the parameter is text and not a node set. I have also attempted to use count(*[name()=$nodeName]), however, this always results in a count of zero, since I need to specify the fully qualified name of the node (e.g. /Report/Body/Table/Record and not just Record).
Has anyone tackled this problem successfully? Any insight into this issue is greatly appreciated!
