It's not working because you're matching the union of 3 nodesets where if a
node isn't in one nodeset it must be all the others - you can have only one
direct precedent, and if it is <a> it can't be <br> or <li>.

Try this instead.

"br[not(preceding-sibling::node()[1][self::a] or


        [self::br or self::li or self::a])]

It would be better to do it the other way round and positively match these
<xsl:template match=""br[preceding-sibling::node()[1][self::br or self::li
or self::a]]">
	<!-- no br !! -->

<xsl:template match="br">

<xsl:template match="body/br">
	<!-- no br !! -->

btw, people are less likely to answer your queries if your subject lines are
very vague, 
or histrionic.
