Re: (2 xpath questions)
When I query the doc root node for "//", the parser will report that it is an "Incomplete XPath statement". The current MSXML beta has some bugs, but the only missing XPath feature listed is the namespace axis.
The XPath spec says of the // abbreviated syntax:
// is short for /descendant-or-self::node()/
Perhaps that explains why a plain // doesn't work. It lacks a node test following the second slash. The slash is just a delimiter *between* portions of the location path, a sort of conjunction which says "and *then*..." -- it's not a, umm, location step in its own right.
