Hi Paul,

turn around your test:


So you are first choosing the immediate preceding node and then you are testing whether it's a comment or not.

I have a little problem, which I am unable to find the solution because I must think to devious...

I have a XML with some comments on the nodes, just before, that I want to get.

My problem is : there are not always there, so I cannot just use "preceding-sibling::comment()[1]".

Therefore, 2 questions :
- how to get the immediat preceeding node, when you don't know what it will be (element, comments, and for extension PIs, text())
- how can I filter comments from it

Thanks in advance.
