Hi all,
I firstly apologize for my beginner's question.

I've an XML document like this

I would like to get as an output a list of all the occurences of the <persName> element and the number of time that the form occours, like that:

pippo 2
pluto 1
ciccio 1

I've tryed to do this using <xsl:number> as follow:

<xsl:template match="p">
<xsl:for-each select="persName">
<br />
<xsl:value-of select="." />:
<xsl:number count="*" value="???">

but I'm unable to complete the expression required by the value attribute.
Thank you in advance

Elena Pierazzo
