I have a XML file (see below) with a "file" nodes and
I want to get a count of file nodes based on certain
attributes.  I am using XSLT transformations on the
XML to put them into HTML.

Here is the XML:
<file type="txt" path="...."/>
<file type="txt" path="...."/>
<file type="doc" path="....."/>
<file type="html" path="...."/>

End result I want displayed on the screen is something
like this:
txt files: count = 2
doc files: count = 1
html files: count = 1
total files: count = 4

How would I get this?  I can get the total file count
by using: <xsl:value-of select="count(file)"/>.

To get the individual file counts I did something like
this: <xsl:value-of
select="count(file[@type='txt'])"/>  but it errored on

Any ideas?
