My experience so far of these hybrid relational/xml systems is that your problem as a user is not a lack of functionality, but an excess. There are simply too many ways of doing the same thing, and they have too many irritating differences - different sets of functions, different rules for case independence, different conventions for escaping special characters - and different (unpredictably different) performance. I find it hard to believe that this ugly hybrid of SQL and XQuery represents the future of database technology. I find databases where everything is XML (or indeed where everything is tables) much easier to work with. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
