By considering the specialisation
the Schur function, Stanley was able to describe a formula for the
number of semistandard Young tableaux of shape $\lambda$ in terms of
the contents and hook lengths of the boxes in the Young diagram.
Using specialisations of symplectic and orthogonal Schur functions,
we derive corresponding formulae,
first given by El Samra and King, for the number of semistandard
symplectic and orthogonal $\lambda$-tableaux.
