There is no formal terminology as "above" in XPath data model. I think
you would be meaning parent, preceding-sibling or a preceding

If it's parent, you can access that as .. or parent::* ; or using
other axes as appropriate.

Though, I agree with Ron, that restructuring your XML may help you
query the data more easily.
