You want to group the data by the organisms that they're under. You need to create a key that indexes the data elements by the org: <xsl:key name="data-by-org" match="data" use="org" /> Then you can retrieve all the data elements for Organism1 with: key('data-by-org', 'Organism1') You can find the names of all the organisms by going through all the data elements in your document and finding those that are the first data elements returned by the key for their particular value, with: <xsl:for-each select="//data[count(.|key('data-by-org', org)) = 1]"> <xsl:value-of select="org" /> ... </xsl:for-each> I'm not exactly sure what you want to do with the data elements, but it looks like you might want to iterate over them and give some kind of output based on the number of cap ancestors they have, so something like: <xsl:for-each select="//data[count(.|key('data-by-org', org)) = 1]"> <xsl:value-of select="org" /> <xsl:for-each select="key('data-by-org', org)"> <br /> <xsl:for-each select="ancestor::cap"> <xsl:text>cap</xsl:text> <br /> </xsl:for-each> <xsl:value-of select="info" /><br /> </xsl:for-each> <br /><br /> </xsl:for-each> For more detail on the theory, have a look at http://www.jenitennison.com/xslt/grouping/muenchian.html.
