Wendell,

Thanks for the reply. Below is the stylesheet and complete XML document. I'm
using the XSLT processor built into Altova's XMLSpy (Home Edition, version
2005 sp2).

====================

(stylesheet)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
   <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
   <xsl:key name="x" match="address" use="zip"/>

   <xsl:template match="/">
     <root>
       <countMethod>
         <xsl:apply-templates mode="item-detail"
select="addressbook/address[count(. | key('x', zip)[1])=1]"/>
       </countMethod>
     </root>
   </xsl:template>

   <xsl:template match="address" mode="item-detail">
     <Name>
       <xsl:value-of select="id"/>
       <xsl:text>, </xsl:text>
       <xsl:value-of select="name/last-name"/>
       <xsl:text>, </xsl:text>
       <xsl:value-of select="zip"/>
     </Name>
   </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

ASP,

Your code looks fine. It's not clear why you're not getting the values,
assuming everything in your source and stylesheet is as given.

All I can suggest is that you post again with a *complete* sample input and
stylesheet the demonstrates the problem (it's good for it to be trimmed
down, but it should be ready to run), which we can paste somewhere and test.

It's also wise to tell us what processor you're using, etc., although this
particular problem doesn't look very likely to be a processor bug....

Cheers,
Wendell
