While producing my XML output with XSLT I also need to count
the number of nodes I created and add sequence numbers to
each node. Please note that I cannot use the count function
on the original document as there is no way to retrieve this
data without producing the transformed data first.
Create the result into a RTF, turn that into a node-set and process to add the
sequence numbering, or do two passes. There might a way to do everything in
just one pass by changing the processing, but since you didn't show use your
original document, one can't tell.
Where the "seq" number is just a counter that is incremented
by one. Plus once the document is produced I need to set the
maximum sequence number equal to a variable (In the above
example it is 3) so that I can pass this information back to
Variable outside the XSLT process? Use an extension to set it, or e.g. output a
processing-instruction which you read on the way to serialization, or use
xsl:message to output the number and catch that.
