Aha, the node test node() will select all types of nodes, even text() nodes

  • so find a <header> which contains 'rationale'
  • and select every child node of that header
  • and filter this nodeset for nodes which have following-sibling with tagname  <l> or which have tagname  <l>
xmllint.exe --xpath " //header[ contains(.,'rationale') ]/node()[ fol +lowing-sibling::l or self::l] " fudge 1. Purpose and rationale <p>purpose 1</p> <p>Purpose 2</p> <p>purpose 3</p> <l> <li>purpose list 1</li> <li>list2</li> </l> 2. Purpose and rationale <p>2 purpose 1</p> <p>2 Purpose 2</p> <p>2 purpose 3</p> <l> <li>2 purpose list 1</li> <li>2 list2</li> </l>

Naturally if there are more than one  <l> you can limit to first <l> with position()  xmllint.exe --xpath " //header[ contains(.,'rationale') ]/node()[ following-sibling::l[ position()=1 ] or self::l[ position()=1 ]  ]   " fudge
