Your template matches both <Rec> elements, so you get two instances of "Ello xslers." in your output.

Your template matches and <Rec> element with an <activity> child element that doesn't have preceding-sibling <Rec>. Since both <Rec> elements have <activity> child elements, and since none of the <activity> elements has a preceding-sibling of ANY kind, you are matching both <Rec>s.

I'm missing something fundamental, what is it?

<xsl:template match="Rec[activity != preceding-sibling::Rec/activity
or not(preceding-sibling::Rec)]">
  Ello xslers.



Above should only print anything once, but I'm getting it each time.
What am I not getting?
