It depends on how you define "duplicates". Nodes that are fn:deep-equal()?Or nodes that have the same string() value?
According to your description, it seems that another page does notcontain <head> nodes. So I guess you may want to eliminate nodes thatcontain the same content with <head> (and <p>) nodes which are alreadyfound. Could you please paste a more complete example to describe yourrequirment? Thanks.

However, since I have another group with similar node structure in another page as indicated in <information> node, the same information is presented again. I don't have this problem when I only run the search asking for only <head> containing certain text, therefore I am guessing it must not be the distinct-values() issue.>> Or, is it?>> Thanks for your help.>>> Alice> ======================================================> Alice Wei> MIS 2008> School of Library and Information Science> Indiana University Bloomington> ajwei at indiana.edu> ________________________________________>> From: ÕÔÀ× [zhaolei at gmail.com]> Sent: Friday, March 14, 2008 10:12 PM> To: Wei, Alice J.> Cc: talk at x-query.com> Subject: Re: [xquery-talk] Union and Intersect Operators>>> In your second query, "intercept" should be "intersect"?>> Union is functioned on nodes.

I intend to use the union operator here to combine all the results of the possible tags I intend to run search against, but it turned out that the $count variable below, which the similar XPath has been used to call the function as well for the query, does not exclude duplicates.
