Try select="(UniqueInfo | following-sibling::Item/UniqueInfo) for example, in a variable: <xsl:variable name="uniqueInfo" select="(UniqueInfo | following-sibling::Item/UniqueInfo)"/> This relies on the fact that the result of a union (|) is always in document order, and "" will therefore select whichever comes first: the UniqueInfo child of this item, or the UniqueInfo child of the next item.
