Re: Ridiculous XPath expression, can I reduce it?
^W on emacs (or ^X on a windows-y editor would probably make it smaller...) > which basically finds all the elements that exist below any given > <input.form> tag but not below an <input.link> tag. does it? If I didn't look at the sample code you'd posted I'd code the requested selection as .//*[ancestor::input.form and not(ancestor::input.link)] The code you posted seemed to be doing something with @done and also checking there was exactly one ancestor. Also it restricted * to a fixed list of element names. You may change * in the above to *[self::input.hidden or self::input.text or ....] if you really need this restriction.
