Re:  so how does sum() work?
Michael,

Actually you were 100% correct.  When I declared the type on the
'element' parameter I realised that I'm not passing it in this
particular call to the template.  The select that was failing in
print-assertion template was only being called when the result was
false.

Cheers

Jacek
