Hi i've the below xml

HTML Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<chapter num="A">
		<content-style font-style="bold">PART 1 GENERAL PRINCIPLES</content-style>
	<section level="sect1">
			<content-style font-style="bold">Chapter 1: THE NEW ARBITRATION ORDINANCE</content-style>
		<section level="sect2">
			<section level="sect2" num="1.">
			<section level="sect2"  num="2.">
			<title>INTRODUCTION 1</title>
			<section level="sect2"  num="3.">
			<title>INTRODUCTION 2</title>

and when i use the below xslt

HTML Code:
<xsl:number count="section"/>

the number is starting from 2, but i want from 1 as, the first sec2 doesn't have a num attribute, please let me know how can i do this, also i need to use only number count function
