Default XSLT recursive Additions

Recursive Addition
Hey all,
I need some procedure that can add the value of a specific node recursive.
In other words I need something that could do following:-

var a;

for (int i=0;i<count;i++)
a = a + value of (xslt node)
print a;

Do you want to use XSLT 1.0 or 2.0?
Are you aware that even XSLT/XPath 1.0 has a function named 'sum' http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#function-sum so you might simply be able to use
<xsl:value-of select="sum(foo)"/>
where foo is the name of the elements you want to sum up.
