Yes, I got the one I needed.

Yes, you are right.

More generally, I'm trying to get the position of an element in a selected
list of elements. All elements are identifiable by   @id. If the element is
not selected (even if it matches the element name) in the list, then nothing
is output. I need the position of that element a few times in a matching
template for that element in different places.
