[wp-hackers] custom taxonomies : how to get the current slug?

I've a custom post type and a custom taxonomy.

in the sidebar of my site I list the terms, for example:

*Color* (the taxonomy)

   - red (2)
   - blue (3)

if I click on blue I list all post with associated to the blue term.

in this page (www.example.com/color/blue/, I would like to show the number
of post (ie 3), I use this piece of code for testing and it works but the
term name is harcoded:

$taxonomy = "color";
$term_slug = 'red';
$term = get_term_by('slug', $term_slug, $taxonomy);
 echo 'Number of posts: '.$term->count;

so my question is how to get the current slug?

(and sorry for my bad english!)
