I can think of two answers but they both have problems. Well the theorical answer is that XPath operates on an XPath data model, not a DOM view. Your question has no answer, XPath is not designed to work on a standard DOM tree, CDATA are transparently turned in (the container) text node. it returns the text node of the XPath data model which is the unique children of the foo element node.
