I'm fairly new to XSLT and have been trhown in the deep end here. :p
I have a problem I've been beating my head against a wall over for a
couple of days, so now that it's good and bloody I've found this mailing
In a nutshell, I have "item" nodes that have three sub nodes: name, type
I'm trying to create a node set that only contains different nodes. The
problem I'm running into is I seem to be losing nodes that I shouldn't.
I'm using the following to select the nodes:
<xsl:for-each select="items/item[not(name = preceding-sibling::*/name
and type = preceding-sibling::*/type and status =
An example from the XML might be: truck,silverado,chevy,on
truck,silverado,chevy,off truck,ranger,ford,on truck,silverado,chevy,on
>From that I want to see the first three in a node set. However, what
I'm getting are the second and third ones.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
