Re: XPath node-set order

No, not in the set, you can not for example store a set of ancestors in a variable in "ancestor axis order". The predicates refer to teh order in the current node list (which, being a list is ordered) but that is not a first class object, it can't be stored in a variable or returned as a result of an expression.
