David,

Thanks it works great. For the record, the element name "tagName" is used 
to reference a set of tags developed to mark up text for a flat world 
version of XSEM (XML Scripture Encoding Model). The goal is to easily 
convert from the flat world to XML specifically XSEM.

<xsl:when test="generate-id() = 
generate-id((ancestor::usage[1]//tagName[@idref=current()/@idref])[1])">

XSLT can not see tags in the document (so doesn't have a concept of
tagName) but I'll assume you mean element name, even though elements and
tags are very different hings.

<when test="the current tagName/@idref is the first tagName/@idref in 
usage">


that would be in XSLT 2

test=". is (ancestor::usage[1]//tagName[@idref=current()/@idref])[1]"

or in XSLT 11 


test="generate-id() = 
generate-id((ancestor::usage[1]//tagName[@idref=current()/@idref])[1])"
