In which case you will want to read:

Remember with XSLT you don't break out of a loop, you only select the
nodes you want to process.

Best of luck

With some work I have been able to get all the distinct values but I don't know how to get only first 8 distinct values :

My XSL goes something like this :

<xsl:apply-templates select="//HIT[generate-id(.) = generate-id(key('hit-keyword', substring-after(substring-before(substring-before(FIELD[@NAME='docvector'] ,'1]'),','),'['))[1])]" mode="col"/>

<xsl:template match="//HIT" mode="col">
<!--<xsl:for-each select="key('hit-keyword',substring-after(substring-before(substring-before(FIELD[@NAME='docvector'] ,'1]'),','),'['))">-->
<xsl:variable name="thekeyword" select="substring-after(substring-before(substring-before(FIELD[@NAME='docvector'] ,'1]'),','),'[')"/>
<p><a href="#" onClick="javascript:document.IntranetSrchFrm.keyword.value='{$thekeyword}';document.IntranetSrchFrm.submit();"><xsl:value-of select="substring-after(substring-before(substring-before(FIELD[@NAME='docvector'] ,'1]'),','),'[')"/></a></p>


Any ideas will be appreciated , I have failed to build a correct expression for recursion.

thanks, ashutosh
