Re: The operator '!=' returns false when one operand d
All right according to the spec:We have an issue with the XPath '!=' operator that has a strange behavior when one of its operand doesn't exist in the instance document. It returns 'false" when you would expect "true" or some kind of exception to be raised.
"If both objects to be compared are node-sets, then the comparison will be true if and only if there is a node in the first node-set and a node in the second node-set such that the result of performing the comparison on the string-values of the two nodes is true."
