[xsl] XPATH restricting preceding nodes

Subject: [xsl] XPATH restricting preceding nodes

I have something like the following XML document:

		<entry text='aaa'/>
		<entry text='bbb'/>
		<entry text='aaa'/>
		<entry text='ccc'/>
		<entry text='bbb'/>  ***
		<entry text='ccc'/>		

I only want to select entries with the same text once for each page.
For the first page I want to get only one aaa-entry and one bbb-entry.
For the second page I want to get only one ccc-entry and ond bbb-entry.

I did this with the following XPATH expression :
	<xsl:for-each select="ancestor::page/descendant::entry[not(@text = preceding::entry/@text)]">

but then I don't get the bbb-entry for the second page. 
I cannot figure out a way to restrict the preceding::entry result set to the current page.
What am I doing wrong?
