Hi Oleg,

Most probably you ment not:

> count(../@* | .)=count(../*)


count(../@* | .)=count(../@*)

There's another expression that evaluates to true only for an attribute node. The
following will perform ***considerably faster*** with MSXML3 because of their very
efficient implementation of the generate-id() function:

generate-id() = generate-id(../@*[name()=name(current())])
