I have a really quick question. What is the abbreviated equivalent of:
../descendant-or-self::node()[generate-id(.) = $node]
The XPath docs say that '//' is equivalent to 'descendant-or-self::node()', but if I try
..//[generate-id(.) = $node]
I get an error, and
..//*[generate-id(.) = $node]
is nearly there, but produces a different effect. What do I use to replace the '*', as I don't want to select the children of '..'s descendants, I want the descendants themselves. '.' doesn't work.
It seems to be that '//' is equivalent to 'descendant::node()', ie, 'self' is not included. What am I doing wrong?
