*If* I understand that correctly -- and that's a big
if -- the nodes returned by key('x',generate-id(.))
would be the nodes that bound each portion of content
that I'm trying to collect. If I wanted to ignore the
content between successive <div1>s, this would be
helpful. However, I don't see how the node set
returned by the call to "key" could be input to
anything that would actually retrieve content between
successive <div*>s.

Maybe I wasn't clear enough. What I want to do is
collect the siblings following one top-level <div*>
but preceding the next top-level <div*> so that I
could, for example, render them within the page
sequence containing the contents of the <div> that
preceded them.
