Default XSLT simulation of two column Group By

In my transformation using 1.0, I am getting the appropirate output with one exception - I need to simulate a Group By on two coulmns (attributes) of my output. Currently my output is giving me 30 child elements, and it should group down to 2 child elements - To_Currency and From_Currency. How do I simulate this in XSLT? Following is my code:

<xsl:element name="MAX_DATES">


<xsl:variable name="strPriceDate" select="normalize-space(@PRICE_DATE)"/>

<xsl:variable name="strToCurrency" select="normalize-space(@TO_CURRENCY)"/>
<xsl:variable name="strFromCurrency" select="normalize-space(@FROM_CURRENCY)"/>

<xsl:variable name="strMaxDate">
<xsl:for-each select="//FOREX[@FROM_CURRENCY='USD'] | //FOREX[@FROM_CURRENCY='USD DOL']">

<xsl:sort select="@PRICE_DATE" data-type="text" order="descending" />
<xsl:if test="position()=1">

<xsl:value-of select="@PRICE_DATE"/>


<xsl:element name="MAX_DATE">

<xsl:attribute name="FROM_CURRENCY">

<xsl:value-of select="@FROM_CURRENCY" />

<xsl:attribute name="TO_CURRENCY">

<xsl:value-of select="@TO_CURRENCY" />

<xsl:attribute name="MAX_PRICE_DATE">

<xsl:value-of select="$strMaxDate" />

Check your post at asp.net. I answered it there. Try not to make duplicate postings on different sites.

Thanks for your response here. I am a native asp.net programmer and have used the forums at asp.net for years. My experience in the last few months is that might not be the best site for XSLT based posts. Not sure if that is true or not but that is why I am posting on different sites - I am trying to find the best forums for XSLT based questions.
