Hi All,

Here is my XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <li status="new">1</li>
                <li status="new">2</li>
                <li status="new">3</li>
                <li status="new">6</li>

My context node is <li status="new">1</li>. I want to get the last
consecutive following-sibling with the same status value. So, in this case,
I want to find this one: <li status="new">3</li>. I don't want 6 because
there are intervening elements between. I am using this


to get the next one, but I am wondering if there is a single XPath 1.0
statement that will get me directly to 3 when the context node is 1. Thank
you very much.
