Just out of curiosity; the spec says:

"text() selects all text node children of the context node"

"Function: number count(node-set)
The count function returns the number of nodes in the argument

Why does this build 1 huge text node?

  All <xsl:value-of> translate into adding some text to the current document,
i.e. adding a text node at the current insertion point.
  And all that stylesheet does is to accumulate <xsl:value-of> on all matching

Oops, if this is true then XSLT it's really not intuitive here, since
I would expect the expression to be evaluated from inner to outer; i.e.
"count(text())" to return a number first and _then_ this number to be
converted to a string, which is added to the output.
Strange it seems to me.
