I am not trying to convince you that your viewpoint is incorrect, its true but several things can be true at the same time. Anyhow, I have drifted into xmldev territory ... so will try to bring this back to how it relates to xquery. One thing that we can do is make XQuery very easy to work with web services; expath http means we have a standard library with which to build some more sophisticated and generic web services clients. Where to go from here ? thx, J
