That works - almost. :-)
One detail remains to be dealt with.

The input XML I am working on is not the most professional one. ;-)

  <H4>b&</H4>          <- "outer H4"
      <H4>b&</H4>          <- "inner H4"
  <H4>b&</H4>         <- "outer H4"

Of course, your solution counts all the "inner H4", too.
However, I don't want these to be be considered.

So, I extend your proposal a bit:
<xsl:number count="DOK/H4" from="H3" level="any"/>

And there we go - this yields the result I have been looking for.

Thanks for your help,
best wishes,
