[xsl] XPath preceding

Hello,

I am trying to find a particular element that is anywhere before the current
element like this:

preceding::case-cite

This works if the two elements have the same parent, but I want to match an
element anywhere before the current element. For example, if the context is
the <case-cite-2nd> element, I want to find a <case-cite> element anywhere
in the structure previous to the <case-cite-2nd> element.

<root>
  <section>
    <para>
      <case-cite/>
    </para>
    <para>
      <case-cite-2nd/>
    </para>
  </section>
</root>

Thanks in advance.
