I have nothing really substantial to offer here, except to emphasize that in XSLT2 this becomes extremely simple. so my advice is to very seriously consider using XSLT2. that is, for various reasons, sometimes not an option. in that case you probably need to understand the so-called muenchian method, since that technique is the only general purpose grouping method I know of in XSLT1. it's certainly not beginner level XSLT, but given a moderate investment in puzzling it out, is not as they say rocket science. in fact, I learned the method from (indirectly) the man himself: Building Oracle XML Applications Steve Muench At $44USD, it's not cheap, but it contains a section on the eponymous method, with nice pictures and a thorough walk through. it still took me several tries before I really felt comfortable with the idea, but if you're going to be doing any serious XSLT1 work, it's something you pretty much need to understand. -- joe
