Thinking words like "while" and "until" will get you into trouble with
XSLT. Try to rephrase the question: "do this if it's before the first foo
where not bar". For example (I've lost the original question now), let's
say you have a list of <foo> siblings. One of them has a bar attribute;
you only want the <foo>s before the first bar.
will only select the <foo>s who have a following sibling with a bar attribute.
