I have Date elements coming from 2 different parents. <A> <Date>blah</Date> </A> <B> <Date>blah</Date> </B> I am doing <xsl:apply-templates select="A/Date | B/Date> <xsl:sort select="." order="ascending"/> </xsl:apply-templates> and <xsl:template match="Date"> etc </xsl:template> I have noticed that when A and B have a child element of the same date the Date template gets fired on each occasion, whereas I only want it fired once I thought the union operator in the apply-templates would have the effect of eliminating duplicates or aren't they duplicates if they have the same content but come from different parents.
