[xquery-talk] Selecting everything before and after path,
but without duplicated leafs

I have an XML file (quite long) and I have a path to an element. I
want to select
(1) everything of that path and its descendants, at the same time I
want to return everything (2) before that path, and everything (3)
after that path. I was trying the XPath axes "preceding" and
"following", but these axes are returning duplicate leafs, which is
not what I want. I would like to reconstruct the original XML file,
but with an extra tag for the XPath selection ($unit).
This is how my XQuery looks like.
let $doc := doc("file.xml")
let $precedingUnit := $doc/ead/archdesc/dsc/c01/preceding::node()
let $unit := $doc/ead/archdesc/dsc/c01/self::node()
let $followingUnit := $doc/ead/archdesc/dsc/c01/following::node()
I am using XQuery with Saxon: java -cp saxon9.jar net.sf.saxon.Query query.xq
Could you please help me?
Thank you very much, I am really desperate in getting this working.
