Well, that does in fact produce the desired result but it was not suggested by Andrew. He did not specify the use of "/" as the node selector - and, frankly, while I am pleased to have identified a solution I am mystified why this works and a simple key reference does not since surely "/" simply specifies the global processing scope in any case.

With respect,

you can run it to see the result.

yes but it's not clear what you wanted the result to be.

The result of your code as posted is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><p>barfoo</p>
   <p> foobar </p>

If I modify it as Andrew suggested, using the third argument of key to
tell the system to look up keys in the original document

by (adding

<xsl:variable name="main" select="/"/>

as a global variable and changing

I get

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><p>barfoo</p><p>barfoo</p>
   <p> foobar </p>

ie an extra copy of <p>barfoo</p> but I can't tell if that's the result
you want.
