Please remember to reply-to-all and keep everything on the list, > Why does the spec not provide a method add-durations() ? > What were the reasons not to have such a function? > > Same for my other question: > Why does the spec not provide a method add-duration-to-dateTime() ? > What were the reasons not to have such a method? Have a look at: http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-functions/#duration-arithmetic Note that the op: prefixed functions are example functions rather than actual functions you can call... as the normal + - operators etc work on those types. So to add a duration to date, you use $date + $duration, to subtract a duration you use $date - $duration and so on. If that doesn't make sense, post back (reply-to-all) with some sample code. -- Andrew Welch http://andrewjwelch.com
