Re: AW: simple conditional looping

A predicate in an axis step just filters that step. //*[position() < 50] is /descendent-or-self::node/child::*[position() < 50] so it gives you all element nodes in the document that have fewer than 49 older siblings. On the other hand (//*)[position() < 50] is (/descendent-or-self::node/child::*)[position() < 50] which gives you the first 49 element nodes in the document.
