I use ancestor-or-self::* to obtain the node sequence from some node to the document root. The outermost/top element of the document isn't interesting, so I add a predicate, and I find that this works: [position() != last()] Apparently, the sequence goes from leaf to root, which is the closing tag order, as it should be.
Then, I iterate over the sequence, and now the nodes are processed from root to leaf, which is strange.
