Re:  Diagram of XPath axes

A rare slip from Gerrit? who surely means

select="//*[. &lt;&lt; current()]"

although I'd personally go with


to select all the elements before the current node in document order. :-)

Cheers, Wendell

Just a side note: If you want to select the preceding elements

In XSLT: select="*[. &lt;&lt; current()]"
