Hello All,

I am trying to remove attribute values in a list based on a frequency

Is this possible in XSLT 2? I cannot see how to tackle the problem without
being able to store the last attribute value added to the result tree so that
I can compare against it for the following attribute values? I am told that
there is no way to query the result tree and so I am at a loss as to whether
XSLT can actually do what I require?

To illustrate, please see the example below.

The frequency parameter is 30. I would like to remove all values that are
"within 30" of the last value used. If the first value is 0 then I would like
to remove all the following attribute values that are less than 30 plus the
last value added to the result tree (in this case 0). The only way I can think
to do this is by somehow caching the last value that was copied to the result
tree so I can compare against it with the next value.

It was suggested to me that adjacent grouping my work? I am a recent beginner
to XSLT and would love to learn more about how it might help me achieve the
result I am looking for?
