Order Comparisons

precedes operator is defined:

A comparison with the precedes operator returns true if the first operand 
node is reachable from the second operand node using the preceding axis; 
otherwise it returns false.

In this way ancestors of the node are ignored and so e.g.:

<aaa id="a1">

<bbb id="a2"/>

id('a1') precedes id('a2') 

will return "false"

It seems to me a bit strange.
I would expect "true" as the document node will be sooner in 
document order

Is there any reason why not to use ancestor and preceding axis in the 

<firstName> Miloslav </firstName>
<surname>   Nic      </surname>
