getting rel attr of link and using as text recurring

I'm trying to get the rel attr from a set of links in a slider, to then use as the text for the control. I've got it working except it only lists the first rel multiple times, instead of multiple rels once.

My jQuery is

jQuery("#slider li a").each(function() {

    var yearValue = $(this).attr('rel');

jQuery('#controls li a').text(yearValue);

and the output html is

 <div id="slider">
    <li><a rel="foo" href="#"><img src="image1.jpg" alt="alt" /></a></li>
    <li><a rel="bar" href="#"><img src="image2.jpg" alt="alt" /></a></li>
<ol id="controls">
  <li id="controls1" class="first"><a href="javascript:void(0);" rel="0">foo</a></li>
  <li id="controls2" class="current"><a href="javascript:void(0);" rel="1">foo</a></li>

I need to the ol to have foo and bar, not foo and foo

Any ideas? Much appreciated


try this,

jQuery("#slider li a").each(function() {

    var index = $(this).parent().index();
    var yearValue = this.rel;

    jQuery('#controls li').eq(index).find('a').text(yearValue);
