      Try to do something like this:

      <xsl:template match="building">
      -------------------------------------------------------
      Building: <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>
      Invoice: <xsl:value-of select="parent::core/@invoiceNum"/>
      Previous invoices: <xsl:variable name="bldgName"><xsl:value-of
      select="@name"/></xsl:variable>
      <xsl:for-each select="preceding::building[@name=$bldgName]">
      <xsl:value-of select="parent::core/@invoiceNum"/>
      <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
      </xsl:for-each>
      </xsl:template>
