Re: human-talk for "::"
> ancestor-or-self::* could be acceptably "read" as "ancestor-or-self > _which is_ *" David's explanation is sufficient but he failed to mention the word 'axis' for some reason. A concise but not always accurate reading would be ...an element that is 'along the ancestor-or-self axis', which means 'is a member of the "ancestor-or-self" set of nodes' * has a more specific meaning, though. It's not always an element, and there are namespace issues. - Mike ___________________________________________________________ Mike J.
