Try this code.  It might give you good start

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
    <xsl:variable name="unique_letters"
    <xsl:template match="record">
        <xsl:for-each select="$unique_letters">
            Letter = <xsl:value-of select="." /><br />                   
            <xsl:for-each select="//record[@letter=current()]">
            color = <xsl:value-of select="@color" /><br />   

It does grouping but I couldnt prevent duplication.  Need little more work.
