RE: Number of elements with a given attribute
This thread has encouraged me to dust off some previous work, tidy it up a bit, and post it with the hopes that someone with XSLT expertise will take a look and explain what I could have done better, and why it would be better. The stylesheets at http://wiki.tei-c.org/index.php/PartLines1.xslt and http://wiki.tei-c.org/index.php/PartLines2.xslt are proof-of-concept stylesheets that do the same thing in XSLT 1 and XSLT 2, respectively. Each one reads in a standard TEI P5 file and generates an XHTML table of the metrical lines within. Each metrical line has its line number with respect to its parent line group associated with it, and partial lines are taken into account. In TEI P5 a metrical line is encoded using an <l> element, line groups (e.g., stanzas or verses) are encoded using an <lg> element, and partial lines are indicated in a variety of ways. The method these stylesheets look for is a part= attribute whose value may be one of * I (for "initial"), * M (for "medial"), or * F (for "final"). (NB that the TEI part= attribute may also be 'Y' or 'N', but my stylesheets ignore these values.) These are, I believe, analogous to the OP Faehndrich Philippe's <verse> elements with part= of "beginning", "continuation", and "end". For example, if the input TEI document contains <lg type="verse"> <l>Asked a girl what she wanted to be</l> <l part="I">She said</l> <l part="F"><said>baby, can't you see</said></l> <l><said>I wanna be famous, a star on the screen</said></l> <l><said>But you can do something in between</said></l> </lg> the corresponding output table will look something like
