Think i have worked out how to do some of it:
<xsl:for-each select="viewentry[count(. | key('ve-by-firstocc', substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1))[1]) = 1]">
<xsl:variable name="firstletternow" select="substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1)" />
<xsl:if test="key('ve-by-firstocc',$firstletternow)"><a href="#{$firstletternow}"><xsl:value-of select="substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1)" /></a> | </xsl:if>
<xsl:value-of select="substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1)" /> |
but this only loops around for the groups and therefore only displays links for the groups. Id it possible to loop round the letter sof the alphabet?? a-z

I am stil having a bit of trouble with the selective links problem. Bascially i would like to display the the alpahbet at the top of the page and have a link (#b for example) to a letter if a title starts with it. E.g.
In this example B and D are links:
A, (B), C, (D), E.........X, Y, Z

Dont call

I know that to take the first letter aoff teh title it would be <xsl:value-of select="substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1)" />.....
At the moment i have a key <xsl:key name="ve-by-firstoccurrence" match="viewentry" use="substring(entrydata[3]/text,1,1)" /> which finds the first occurrence of a letter and groups every other title according to first letter..
