I have the following XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<chapter>
    <section level="1">
        <title id="1003261">Camshaft Cover</title>
        <section level="2">
            <title id="1003269">Removal</title>
            <paragraph id="1003264"/>
        </section>
        <section level="2">
            <title id="1003262">Rebuilding</title>
            <paragraph id="1003265"/>
        </section>
        <section level="2">
            <title id="1003321">Installation</title>
            <paragraph id="1003322"/>
        </section>
    </section>
</chapter>

When my context is a particular level 2 section element, I need to find all
of the title elements of the sibling level 2 elements, except for the
current level 2 section's title. So, for example if my context is the
Removal section, I want to find the Rebuilding and Installation titles. I am
using this, but it is returning all of the level 2 titles:

parent::section/section[not(self)]/title

Thanks in advance for any help.
