How are attributes handled in Ranges?
Hi, I have been trying to understand how attributes are handled as a part of a range. What I understand from the XPointer WD is that a range that starts within an attribute value must also end within that attribute value, but what if the attribute is carried by an element that is part of the range? Is the attribute also in the range? And what if only the content of the element is in the range? And what about ordering? In the XPointer WD it says: For a node-point with a zero index, the container node is also the immediately preceding node unless it has any attribute or namespace nodes. If the container node does have attribute or namespace nodes, then the immediately preceding node is the last of those nodes. So: the attribute is not one of the childnodes that can be identified using the element as container and an index to point to the right node (this seams right to me: attributes are not on the child axis). But for the first child element, the last attribute of the parent _is_ the immediately preceding node. This confuses me a little. Maybe it's not that important, but if anyone could clear this up for me, I'd be grateful. Thx, Teun Duynstee xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
