Need to remove duplicates in a xml file based on a element's value.
Just use the first node with the element in the resulting list;

Here is a sample xml:



The result needs to be:

Title1 Tom
Title3 Jim

In this case use the first occurance of the 'Author' element.
How can i accomplish this in xslt?
Any hints on which xsl functions i can use for this?

Thanks in Advance,
Rajiv
