You could use the union of preceding and following siblings:

( preceding-sibling::section | following-sibling::section)/title

I hope this helps.

I have the following XML file:

            <title id="1003321">Installation</title>
            <paragraph id="1003322"/>

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:


Thanks in advance for any help.
