Hi all:

I have an XML input:


How do I check if the previous node name for <item> is test1 or text?

select="preceding::*[1][self::item1 or self::text]"

I think (s)he meant (guessing):

select="preceding::*[1][self::text] | parent::test1/*[1][generate-id(.) eq generate-id(current())]"

but the OP is pretty unclear about what he wants (can text node be named test1, can test1 be something else then a parent etc? What is the context node?) and fails to include his own tryouts.
