XSL/XML Transformation Question

Suppose I have the following in an XML file:
<FTPSITE server="" directory="/usr/WebSphere">
<FTPSITE server="" directory="/home/db2inst1">
<USERNAME>harry johnson</USERNAME>
What I want to do using an XSL stylesheet is to output a table where every user is sorted by size. If a USERNAME occurs in different FTPSITEs, then add the SIZEs together.
So the results should be:
Ming 34000
kilgore 15000
harry johnson 6000
lary 3000
Any ideas?

you can try this but it isnt tested.I still have problems with matching nodes so i dont know if this works

<xsl:for-each select="/DATA/FTPSITE">
<xsl:value-of select="USERNAME">
<xsl:sort order="descending" select="SIZE"/>
