Re: Quick Xpath
Hi Garland, > Return all the "b" nodes that are inmediately preceded by an "a" > element (the bold nodes). Use: /foo/b[preceding-sibling::*[self::a]] preceding-sibling::* gets you the immediately preceding element; the [self::a] predicate tests whether the element that you select is an 'a' element or not. It's better doing it this way than using local-name() because it deals properly with namespaces (i.e. it looks for 'a' elements in no namespace rather than all elements that are called 'a' no matter what namespace they're in).
