In my opinion > it would be more elegant doing it that way ;-). well some could consider that bloating the language too :-) But I think the baseline is that XPath became a W3C REC more than one year ago, while none of XLink/XPointer is yet a REC (<grin/> and I have tried everything to get this faster !). Once XLink and XPointer will get more widely deployed coming with detailed suggestion to the XSL working group will be the most efficient way to get such extensions considered for inclusion. > > > I don't know what XSLT processor (or library) you're referring to. > > Ah, he'll be upset now:-) Nahh, I'm for diversity :-) BTW do other processors support at least the #name fragment ID in document() (or more complete implementations) ? > That was not my intention :-).
