numbering and document()

The XML DT I am creating a stylesheet for has an

<include file="sub.xml"/>

element, which can be used to include sub.xml seamlessly in the main
document. Now, suppose the documents look like this

    <include file="sub.xml"/>


and my stylesheet is supposed to number the sections in these documents
in the following way:

1 Section
2 Section
3 Section     <--- from sub.xml
4 Section     <--- from sub.xml
5 Section

whereas 4 and 5 are from sub.xml. I tried to achieve this using the
following templates:

<xsl:template match="section>
    <xsl:number/> Section

<xsl:template match="include">
    <xsl:for-each select="document(@file)/doc/*">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="self::section"/>

but the numbering I get, is

1 Section
2 Section
1 Section     <--- from sub.xml
2 Section     <--- from sub.xml
3 Section

I am at a loss as to how to solve this problem. If anybody has an idea,
please tell me.

Thanks in advance,
Felix Breuer
