Hi,

   I have not tried this with IE5 but this works for me and produces exactly
the output you specified... FYI I created and previewed this using the
Stylus beta editor and then tested it with Oracle's XMLparser.



<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0">

<xsl:template match="*|/"><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="text()|@*"><xsl:value-of select="."/></xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="ITEMLIST">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="ITEM"/>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="ITEM">
        <xsl:if test =
"not(CATEGORY=preceding-sibling::ITEM[position()=1]/CATEGORY)">
                <xsl:value-of select="CATEGORY"/><br/>
        </xsl:if>
        <xsl:value-of select="NUMBER"/>
        <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
        <xsl:value-of select="DESCRIPTION"/><br/>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>


regards

I've searched the archives and found a few posts in this area, but nothing
that seems to directly address the problem.  I'm working with the Microsoft
IE5 XMLDom.  Given the following XML:
<?XML version='1.0'?>
<ITEMLIST>
<ITEM>
<CATEGORY>Category A</CATEGORY>
<NUMBER>00001</NUMBER>
<DESCRIPTION>Item 1</DESCRIPTION>
</ITEM>
<ITEM>
<CATEGORY>Category B</CATEGORY>
<NUMBER>00002</NUMBER>
<DESCRIPTION>Item 2</DESCRIPTION>
</ITEM>
<ITEM>
<CATEGORY>Category B</CATEGORY>
<NUMBER>00003</NUMBER>
<DESCRIPTION>Item 3</DESCRIPTION>
</ITEM>
<ITEM>
<CATEGORY>Category C</CATEGORY>
<NUMBER>00004</NUMBER>
<DESCRIPTION>Item 4</DESCRIPTION>
</ITEM>
</ITEMLIST>
1.  Using XSL, convert to the following output (without using the actual
category name as part of the XSL)
Category A
00001 Item 1
Category B
00002 Item 2
00003 Item 3
Category C
00004 Item 4
