I thought you probably would. (Sometimes with keys it helps to jiggle them a little.)

I wish there was a way to do this without being forced to provide the
"1" in the 2nd argument of the xsl:key statement.  Errr.... but that's

I take it you mean in the key() function not the xsl:key declaration ... well, in real life that '1' will usually be a bit of XPath, such as '@t' (the value of the t attribute of the context node). The function could have been designed to provide a default value for that argument, but it's not clear what that default should be. (The value of the context node? But that's rarely what we actually need.) So it's not a bad thing on balance, I think, that the argument is required.
