AW: XPATH restricting preceding nodes
Hi, I made this XML document too simple in the last post. Entries are not siblings! The XML document should rather something like this: <top> <page> <paragraph> <entry text='aaa'/> </paragraph> <paragraph> <entry text='bbb'/> </paragraph> <paragraph> <entry text='aaa'/> </paragraph> </page> <page> <paragraph> <entry text='ccc'/> </paragraph> <paragraph> <entry text='bbb'/> *** </paragraph> <paragraph> <entry text='ccc'/> </paragraph> </page> </top> I only want to select entries with the same text once for each page. For the first page I want to get only one aaa-entry and one bbb-entry. For the second page I want to get only one ccc-entry and ond bbb-entry. I did this with the following XPATH expression : <xsl:for-each select="ancestor::page/descendant::entry[not(@text = preceding::entry/@text)]"> but then I don't get the bbb-entry for the second page. I cannot figure out a way to restrict the preceding::entry result set to the current page. What am I doing wrong? Thanks ..............................
