Generic count element to count anything a NISO STS standards-producing organization may wish to count in a standards document. The @count-type attribute will name what is being counted (such as appendices, normative-notes, copyright-holders, schemas). The @count attribute will state how many of the objects are in the document.
Although a NISO STS standards-producing organization could choose to record all the counts of objects in a standard using the <count> element, Best Practice is to use the specific count elements (<fig-count>, <table-count>, <word-count>, etc.) whenever possible, using the <count> element only for ad hoc counts, organization-specific counts, standard-specific counts, and similar.
