Many thanks for your help, Hans.

This is like magic to me. But I’m afraid that my description was inaccurate.

I need to mark the last item from nested lists, but considering each
<h2> (such as in my sample), not the whole document.

Just in case it isn’t clear, this is the XML source with desired items

    <h2 id="heading">Heading</h2>
        <li>list</li>                    ***this one***
    <h2 id="heading-1">Heading</h2>
           <li>list</li>                 ***this one***
    <h2 id="heading-2">Heading</h2>
            <li>list</li>               ***this one***

I hope it is clear now that it is the last item in a nested list, but
for each <h2> element.

Many thanks for your help again,
