re size
Tiny editorial oversight. 
The size() function was replaced by the count() 
function before the 21-Apr-1999 draft went public 
and it looks like James must have missed this 
one occurrence of size(). 
So you should be able to use "count(from-ancestors(orderedlist)) mod 3" 
in this example. 
Good eyes!

The xslt spec has the following example fragment in section 11.2:

    <xsl:variable name="level"
                    expr="size(from-ancestors(orderedlist)) mod 3"/>

size() looks like a function, but it is not described as any of the
"well-known" functions. Can I assume that this is some "extension
function" or am I not understanding the syntax?

Or (please say yes) is this a generic function that should be available for all
datatypes but was inadvertently not documented?
