countattribute isn’t specified, it counts nodes with the same name as the current node.
This attribute defines what levels of the source tree should be considered when numbering elements. The three valid values for this attribute are
Counts items at one level only. The XSLT processor goes to the first node in the
ancestor-or-selfaxis that matches the
countattribute, and then counts that node plus all its preceding siblings that also match the
countattribute. This is the default value.
Counts items at multiple levels. The XSLT processor looks at all the ancestors of the current node and at the current node itself, and then it selects all nodes that match the
Includes all of the current node’s ancestors (as
level="multiple"does) as well as all elements in the
In all of these cases, if the
fromattribute is used, the only ancestors that are examined are descendants of the nearest ancestor that matches the
fromattribute. In other words, with
from="h1", the only nodes considered for counting are those that appear under the nearest
