You say that each "item" node has three child nodes, yet your list of items shows four values for each item. Which is correct?

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
and status. 

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  preceding-sibling::*/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.
