AW:  1st previous node()
Have you tried preceding::*[1] ?!
AFAIK this only matches elements.

Betreff:  1st previous node()

I need help finding the first previous node, skipping white space,
comments, etc.. I thought this might work, but I can't get it or
similar tries to work.

<xsl:variable name="previous" select="preceding::node()

Given that <X> is the context node then I expect the previous node is <M>.

   <?skip me?>
   <!--skip me-->
  <X> this is context node </X>

Given that <X> is the context node then I expect the previous node is <B>.

  <X> this is context node </X>
