<xsl:key name="by-date" match="entry" use="@date" />
<xsl:template match="/page">
          <xsl:for-each select="entry[generate-id() =
generate-id(key('by-date', @date)[1])]">

              <xsl:sort select="title" />

select="key('by-date', @date)[position() &gt;=
$pos][position() &lt;= ($pos + 3)]" />
