Re: get immediat preceeding node, if it is a comment
> Sure. But aren't they both the same (they select the same node)? No. If you are in <a/> in <x> <a/><b>b</b><!--x--><c/> </x> preceding-sibling::node()[normalize-space()][self::comment()] selects the comment <!--x--> as that is the first node that is non empty string value and is a comment. preceding-sibling::node()[normalize-space()][self::comment()] selects the empty node set as the first node with non empty string value is not a comment.
