Default counting child nodes


     I'm working in a xslt file that has to count the number of child nodes of an specific parent node.I've been looking at the function
"count" but I don´t know how to call it.


  <b> </b>
  <b> </b>
  <b> </b>

Output 3

<xsl:template match="a">

<xsl:value-of select="count(child::b)"/>????????


Thanks for the help.
