Yes there are ways to check this. Simplest one is to use
preceding-sibling::image or following-sibling::table.

Alternatively, you could try an approach from the parent element, where
you apply all child element except table first and finish with applying
tables only. Something like:

<xsl:template match="root">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()[not(self::table)]"/>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="table"/>

Just an idea..

> Hi :
> I have a question about forcing the order of elements in xslt.

> <table>This table is assoc. with the image above</table>
> </root>
> Now the issue I am facing  is, I have template for the

> However, I want the "table" element that is after the "image"

> How can I achieve this? I tried using mode but it did not work.
