Chuck WhiteSubject: Weird XQuery results?
Author: Chuck White

It seems to me that the following simple XQuery should return nothing, because the expression is calling for the parent node, and there can't be a parent node of the root node, which is the context node at the time the query is being initialized. However, in Stylus, it actually does return something -- the entire XML document:

let $i := (..) return $i

Hi Chuck,

the XQuery specs is not so clear about what is the current context node at startup; our choice was to set the document element as the startup context node, so the ".." axis will return the document node.

Hope this helps,
