Here's a shot at which ones can, from the STX (Streaming Transformations for XML) spec. http://stx.sourceforge.net/documents/spec-stx-20030114.html#stxpath There's a few more things that STX processors will allow, for example to access the first text child of a node when the node is encountered as an event, that's convenient (requires a time delay of one event when reporting events). I'm sure the folks on the STX mailing list would happily discuss their extensive experience with event matching, they've been implementing it for over a year.. Christian
