Re: Outputing a node whose value appears only once
I am trying to eliminate duplicates with the following logic.. <?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"> <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" /> <xsl:template match="/root"> <xsl:for-each select="(a/* | c/*)[not((. = preceding-sibling::a) | (. = preceding-sibling::c) | (. = following-sibling::a) | (. = following-sibling::a))]"> <xsl:value-of select="." /> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> Saxon 8.4 is giving error - Error on line 7 of file:/C:/xml/xsleg/xslt/example1.xsl: XPTY0004: Required item type of first operand of '|' is node(); supplied value has item type xs:boolean Whereas Xalan-J 2.6.0 gives following error - Error at xsl:for-each on line 7 of file:///C:/xml/xsleg/xslt/example1.xsl: The value is not a node-set Can anyone tell where is the problem? And how I can solve it? Regards, Mukul --- Jonathan Marenus <jonathanmarenus@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > > What I would like to do now is output a value that > appears only once throughout the XML file.
