Use the "=" operator and all preceding sibling line elements:

       <xsl:template match="line[title[1] =
       <xsl:template match="line">
         <xsl:apply-templates select="title[1]"/>

One of the variations I had tried before. It does not work.

When I use Saxon 6.5.5 against your posted input sample and the stylesheet


<xsl:template match="line[title[1] = preceding-sibling::line/title[1]]"/>

  <xsl:template match="line">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="title[1]"/>


I get the output

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      La foto
      La C:ltima parada (Lo peor de todo)
      Polvo Eres
      "7 dC-as al desnudo"

"7 vidas"

which looks fine to me as for eliminating the duplicates.
