Maybe sth. like this would do:

<counted_element count=3>

or similar. Besides making the count an attribute of the root node of
counted elements you could simply use a standard pascal loop:

n: XMLNode;

{ this is only pseude code ... }
while (xmldoc.hasMoreChilds()) do begin
	n := getChild();
	... process n ...

For real code http://wiki.freepascal.org/XML_Tutorial mwill help.
