Re: Baby steps
Since XPath is part of XSL, we do answer XPath questions.
We're likely to be much less help on API questions. If it goes on much, we're even liable to complain (since no API is, as such, part of XSL).
In other words: your questions on XPath, if framed carefully to be platform- and API-neutral, are welcome. (That is, along the lines of, "my XML looks like this; if my context node is C, what does XPath d/e/f[g] get me?" or sth similar.) There must be a Xalan list (anyone?) for questions on how to use methods provided in Xalan to provide XPath support in Java. Most readers of this list aren't using Xalan (or any other *particular* processor): Xalans-specific questions are just spam to them (us).
The XSL-list-owner might have something to say on- or off-line about this: I'm answering only as an interested participant.
