<title>
  Renew LP Piston Seal (Fig 5.5.1
  <xref xrefid="F5.5.1" xidtype="FIGURE">) </xref>
</title>


Actually the trailing bracket has a parent <xref>, so Im now using

//text()[not(ancestor::title/ancestor::subpara1)]

(subpara1 distinguishes this title from several other <title>'s in the xml)

is this right?

Also, you are right this works fine

<xsl:template match="xref">
xref
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="title">
  <p class="title">
  <xsl:apply-templates/>
  </p>
</xsl:template>

Thanks for all the help

cheers

andrew
