> The following works fine with Saxon, but fails with Xalan 

because xalan implements XSLT 1.0 but saxon implements 1.1 which
unfortunately allows this behaviour even in a 1.0 stylesheet.

Don't do
<xsl:variable name="NODES">
          <xsl:apply-templates select="Product" mode="Count"/>


<xsl:variable name="NODES" select="Product" mode="Count"/>

then in any XSLT system you will be able to do
   <xsl:value-of select="count($NODES//Product)"/>
