Its not "funny"; it just means that the thing pointed to is not an entity. Thus, it indeed needs a pair of pointers. Two individual points is not the same as a range, although both may be indicated in the same way; how does XQL indicate two points (two pointers) as opposed to a range (pair of pointers)? -- Chris XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
