Re: ### Outputting the "full path". Is this possible ?? ###

You /can/ construct a path from a node, but that path does NOT uniquely identify that node gain. You may have to take into account ordinal (array) positions before your node path becomes definitive. This puzzled me a bit when coming from web development. I figured an XML node could be regarded as an extension of a filesystem path ... until I tried impimenting it. Although you probably understand what I mean if I was to indicate a path like "http://my.xml.com/document.xml#/root/chapter/section", the fact is that that notation CANNOT work. Working backwards from Davids eg, you will see that it will have to be something like document.xml#/root/chapter/section before it becomes meaningful. This may be long-obvious for some on this list, but it blew me away when I first got around to thinking about this limitation (or gotcha) .dan.
