Re: Using count() with a param?
count(*[name()=$nodeName]) counts the nodes selected by *[name()=$nodeName] which as normal is the node set of child elements who's name is $nodeName. If you are evaluating this from the root then this will be 1 or 0 depending on whether the name given is the name of the top element. If you want to count nodes other than child of the root you need to select them, eg count(//*[name()=$nodeName]) will search the whole document for element nodes of that name.
