Forgeting the nodes collections (because it is an overhead getting that
anyway), once you've got the node your interested
it, simply do something like this:

' Grab the node via an XSL pattern

dim iCount as integer
set node = dom.selectNodes( "whatever XML pattern" )
iCount = 0

' While this node is not the first chlid node

while not (node.prevSibling is nothing) then

    ' Add one to count and move back

    iCount = iCount + 1
    set node = node.prevSibling


Basically you just count until there is nobody to your left, then the count
should give you the index you need.
