But isn't what David suggested exactly what you need?

<xsl:template match="*[word][@s_len&lt;2.5]">

I was not clear. And I should have posted some xml, so here it is:

       <word id="3">unravish'd</word>
       <word id="4">bride</word>

       <word id="9">brown</word>
       <word id="10">fox</word>
       <word id="11">jumped</word>
       <word id="12">over</word>
       <word id="13">lazy</word>
       <word id="14">dog</word>,

I want a the xpath which would work in a template match to get the parent node of<word>, no matter what it is, whose @s_len attribute is less than 2.5 seconds.

The template will then compose an element for output, using the tagname of that parent of<word> which met that condition.

This works:
<xsl:template match="clause[@s_len&lt;2.5] | line[@s_len&lt;2.5]">
<xsl:element name="{name()}">
	<xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of select="@id" /></xsl:attribute>

But it presumes that I know that the parent of<word> is either a node named<clause> or<line>. I am trying to generalize even further and not make that assumption in the match condition.

As I said, I cannot seem to use any axis or axis-like expression, so matches like the following give an error in Altova Spy:

I have tried your suggestions and no node is returned, but I think I was not clear in what I needed.

Experimenting with it lead me to a follow-up question.
Altova is complaining about any axis or axis-like syntax in my match
statement. I have also tried word/parent::**[@s_len&lt;0] and various
others. My idea is to get any node the parent of<word>  with that
condition of its attribute.

I was recently surprised to be reminded that match pattern steps are restricted in their syntax. Assuming that the double-asterisk was just a typo in your e-mail, try *[word and @s_len< 0] instead.
