When you collect together all the preceding-siblings of a node, and handle them in document order the first of those nodes is the first of the siblings -- the first child of the parent -- not the closest of those siblings.
<xsl:variable name="anchor" select="ancestor::sidebar | ancestor::warning | ancestor::note | ancestor::orderedlist | ancestor::itemizedlist | ancestor::variablelist | ancestor::varlistentry | ancestor::listitem | ancestor::procedure | ancestor::step | ancestor::footnote"/>
Unfortunately, XPath returns the remotest node (the earliest in document order). For example, if the current node is in a step in a procedure, I need a variable set to that step, not to the whole procedure. Ignore for the moment the possibility of nested lists.
