Try this: select="//inlineequation[not (ancestor::* = table)]" The single quotation marks ('') make the XSL processor look for a string literal, when you want it to look for an element. true but ancestor::* = table makes it test the string value of every ancestor with the string value of its table child, which isn't what was wanted.
