Thanks for the explanation.

I think that, I'm finally able to write an XSLT solution, the way you
suggested earlier (i.e, using string-length(translate( ... to compute the
count). Below is my attempt, that seems to work fine,

<xsl:stylesheet version="3.0" xmlns:xsl="

   <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

   <xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:variable name="temp_result">
                <xsl:value-of select="1"/>
        <xsl:value-of select="0"/>
<yes count="{string-length(translate($temp_result, '0', ''))}"/>
<no count="{string-length(translate($temp_result, '1', ''))}"/>


With above mentioned XSLT stylesheet, the thing that worked is, not
explicitly declaring the type for xsl:variable name="temp_result".
