As it turns out .. *blush* David's answer is right on (which is why it is in the FAQ). My problem was whitespace: some of my tags had <c> X </c> and others had <c>X</c>. I've always thought of them as equivalent... but I guess not. *sigh* .. Can this be fixed? (remove whitespace matching problems?) Rather than require this strict conformance for my XML users, I tried to modify David's distinct-select to use normalize(), only this seems to break things. Without the "normalize" stuff, I get exactly what I had expected "XYZ". However, when I add the "normalize() calls as below, it does not seem to be doing the test ...
