depth of a node
count(ancestor::node())

I'm surprised your searches lead you to XQuery, since a solution that works
on all XQuery processors is much harder: XQuery still makes support for the
ancestor axis optional.

# It seems like this question is answered all the time, buy all my searchs
# seem to point me to XQuery and I don't want to use XQuery. In fact, for
# this purpose it would be most convenient to use the MSXSL processor, so we
# are talking XSLT 1.0.
# 
# I have captured a node in an element:
# <xsl:variable name="max-node" select="descendant::*[name()= 'system' or
# name()= 'component'][position()=last()]" />
# 
# Now I need to know the number of ancestors this node has. What XPath
# expression will give me this? Thanks.
