One reason is that for-each-group gives you more control over ordering in
the result than distinct-values (the order of the result of distinct-values
is implementation-defined).

So if in other contexts I need to be able to know the first occurrence of a unique value, then I want to be using the above approach?

Incidentally, the &apos; could just as well be written '.

However, I don't understand the problem well enough to know which document
you are trying to search at this point.

The concrete case is to account for two different scenarios:

1)  an article
2) a book, which may have xincluded chapters (as mine does)

So, I need to scan the complete document (including the outside chapters which I [expletive deleted] into a temporary tree) for citation references, then use the unique values from that to construct a query that I send via the doc() function to eXist, taking the returned results an adding it to the temporary tree.

As I thought about this more, then, it's starting to seem like I need another pass:

1)   xinclude content
2)  resolve citation references and include them
3)  work with temporary tree enhancing data where necessary
4)  pass off to main stylesheets for final rendering

Does that seem right?
