    On execution, Saxon (and Xalan too) complain about a syntax error
on the outermost "xsl:if" . The Saxon error is shown below :

  XPath syntax error in {...(@ref,':') = $elementName] ...}:
    expected ")", found "<eof>"

You are missing a right-bracket that ends your count function argument.

I hope this helps.
