Excellent! That's exactly what I was trying to achieve. Thanks.
It also seems that this may have answered my other question: about saving the list of letters so I can iterate over them later (to make links to the TOC entries. It looks like I can just take the main for-each loop and save that code to a variable. I'll play with it.
I guess I need to play with the <xsl:key/>'s some more. The code does not seem obvious to me at all....
