I'll show that string again but with space shown as _ and newline shown
as / so they are visible:

It would make no difference in this case

You probably want to use




in which case the strings being compared would look like

"Send 10c for mailing TODAY! Kenmore, Mitford, CR-272 N.H. 03055"

I tried using this by changing the $sorted_result declaration to let

for $doc in distinct-values(normalize-space($seq))
order by $doc

and do the similar thing like you suggested to the other lines

let $head := $seq[normalize-space(.)=$d][1]/ancestor::ad/descendant::head[1]
let $head2 := $seq[normalize-space(.)=$d][1]/ancestor::ad/descendant::head[2]
let $head3 := $seq[normalize-space(.)=$d][1]/ancestor::ad/descendant::head[3]
let $para := $seq[normalize-space(.)=$d][1]/ancestor::ad/descendant::p

This is what I got

The actual cardinality for parameter 1 does not match the cardinality declared in the function's signature: normalize-space($a as xs:string?) xs:string. Expected cardinality: zero or one, got 163.

Have I done something wrong?
