[xsl] Combining of nested children


Subject: [xsl] Combining of nested children

I need to find <Items> in a <List> that have an identical <Heading> attributes except for the @id, and insert a <ToRefs> element from the <Item> without an @id into the <Item> that has the @id attribute. Sample input and output <Item>s are shown below.

I will need to do the same sort of insertion at the <SubDiv1> level, or at the two other possible nested levels of <SubDiv2> and <SubDiv3> [not shown].

I will try to figure out how to do those latter cases once I understand how to do the <Headings> case.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks,
Mark

Input:

<List>
<Item>
<Heading id="A4" entry="subject" data="Abolition of Serfdom">
<SubDiv1 id="A4-1" catalog="1" scott-number="350" pofis-number="474" data="1948. 100th Anniversary of Abolition">
<Article>
<Person>Bulletin of the Ministry of Posts</Person>
<Title>New issues [Title varies or absent]</Title>
</Article>
</SubDiv1>
</Heading>
</Item>
<Item>
<Heading entry="subject" data="Abolition of Serfdom">
<ToRef xref="See also" data="Slovakia - Peasant Revolt 1848" file="s" block="A1272-21"/>
</Heading>
</Item>
</List>


Output:
<List>
<Item>
<Heading id="A4" entry="subject" data="Abolition of Serfdom">
<ToRef xref="See also" data="Slovakia - Peasant Revolt 1848" file="s" block="A1272-21"/>
<SubDiv1 id="A4-1" catalog="1" scott-number="350" pofis-number="474" data="1948. 100th Anniversary of Abolition">
