From the notes on appeals in this forum:

To make matters interesting, the appellee sometimes files its own Notice of Cross-Appeal if it wishes to take issue with some action or decision of the trial court, and becomes a Cross-Appellant as well as an appellee.

Welcome to the forum!
From what I've read, a cross-appeal is an appeal by an appellee who seeks something more than was received in the trial court. One consequence of these rules is that when a cross-appeal is filed the same parties file twin briefs as both appellant and appellee. For example, in a simple two-party appeal in which the prevailing party in the trial court seeks a more favorable award of attorney's fees, and thus files a cross-appeal to complain of the attorney's fees award, the current rules permit a combined total of six briefs: two appellant's briefs, two appellee's briefs, and two reply briefs.
