Re: parent node ??
Thank you, if it is not possible to select all valid inputs that have the same string value of their parent, is it possible to select the solution tag with a few attribute? <solution valid_input_00="Inhalt" valid_input_01="Inhalt1" valid_input_02="Inhalt2" ...>Inhalt</solution> My problem is to count how many valid_inputs have the same string value as the solution tag.
