Re: Muenchian keys ... plus a bit?
Hi Dave, > Question, how to remove the duplicate entries without losing > the page numbers associated with the duplicate? I assume that you have a key that indexes the ent elements by the first letter of their item child: <xsl:key name="entries-by-letter" match="ent" use="item" /> and that you use this to get all the entries that start with a particular letter: key('entries-by-letter', $letter) If you also create a key that indexes the ent elements by the value of the item: <xsl:key name="entries" match="ent" use="item" /> then you can find a list of the unique terms for a particular letter by searching through the set of entries returned by the entries-by-letter key and pulling the Muenchian trick on them: key('entries-by-letter', $letter) [count(.|key('entries', item)) = 1] So you create one entry in your index for each of the terms. When it comes to finding the list of page numbers, you need to use the entries key again: key('entries', $term)/pge I hope that's enough to get you to a solution, Jeni --- Jeni Tennison http://www.jenitennison.com/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
