Re: [xsl] 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
