AW: [xsl] use preceding element or self

Actually I need to check first if the par[@class='Komm_H3'] in my current
<Norm1> has a string right at the beginning of the node(), that will say
before any <inline> or any other element. If not, I need the previous one that
fullfills this requirement.
In my Example for the first 5 "<Norm1>" I would have selected
"EINKOMMENSTEUER", for the next 2 "UMSATZSTEUER", for the last one "BAO,

My xsl template tries to check if there is a string with more than 8
characters right at the beginning of the node(), instead of checking if it is
capitalized or not.

> If there is no capitalized word

what is a capitalised "word" here, is it the first text node or do you
mean that you have to tokenise the content and find any capitilised word
in the content?

eg: <par class="Komm_H3" xml:lang="de">EINKOMMENSTEUER<linebreak/>
				<inline class="*Paragraph">B' 3


		<par class="Komm_H3" xml:lang="de">
				<inline class="*Paragraph">B' 4 Abs 4 Z

--> nothing, get previous one

			<par class="Komm_H3" xml:lang="de">BAO, DOPPELBESTEUERUNG</par>

--> ??

if you just want to get the nearest par class="Komm_H3" that has a
non-white text node then
