Thanks for your solution. Unfortunately I cannot
implement it because I need to output the elements in
the table in a particular order (not sorted as in your
solution). So that makes it a bit trickier. I think I
may have to settle for a lookup table. But I am not
familiar with using lookup I gotta go
learn or ask for help again here.

You used the following in your solution:

>       <xsl:for-each
> select="table/col[count(.|key('union', @month)[1]) =
> 1]">

Can you elaborate on how this works. I gather it
selects a unique occurence of the month attribute from
all the elements. How do you do this if month was
element instead of attribute? Just by omitting the

Also, how does 'generate-id' work? Is it a built-in
xsl function?

I know these may be trivial questions but I am still
on the learning curve with respect to xsl.
