A Couple of Questions - OOXML and SQLTsao, Scott scott.tsao at boeing.com

During a recent XQuery Overview presentation, there were a couple of questions raised which I am searching for answers: 1. Office Open XML (OOXML) is a file format used by the Microsoft Office 2007 applications. Can XQuery be used to get meaningful information from an OOXML document, or would it only return items based on formatting aspects (all heading 1s, or all list items). 2. SQL is based in part on Set theory from Mathematics, and Set algebra. It allows set operations "update all red projects to green." Does XQuery support set algebra? For example, SQL join is a set operation that has inner, outer, Cartesian forms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebra_of_sets Do you have answers to those questions? If you do, please do share!
