  4.   <abr-rel-sym style="inline">=</abr-rel-sym>
  5.   <abr-rel-sym style="inline">&#x02009;</abr-rel-sym>
  6.   <def>
  7.     <p>Calcitonin gene-related peptide</p>
  8.   </def>
  9. </def-item>

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers

Something like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <xsl:template match="*">
  2.   <xsl:if test="name() != name(preceding-sibling::*[1])">
  3.     <xsl:copy>
  4.       <xsl:copy-of select="@*">
  5.       <xsl:value-of select="."/>
  6.       <xsl:if test="name() = name(following-sibling::*[1])">
  7.         <xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::*[1]" mode="merge"/>
  8.       </xsl:if>
  9.     </xsl:copy>
  10.   </xsl:if>
  11. </xsl:template>
  12. <xsl:template match="*" mode="merge"><!-- don't copy element, only it's contents. -->
  13.   <xsl:apply-templates/>
  14. </xsl:template>
