> Actually, while we're on this topic, would somebody mind explaining > the // notation for me? this is fairly clear in the xpath spec. I quote: http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#path-abbrev // is short for /descendant-or-self::node()/. For example, //para is short for /descendant-or-self::node()/child::para and so will select any para element in the document (even a para element that is a document element will be selected by //para since the document element node is a child of the root node); div//para is short for div/descendant-or-self::node()/child::para and so will select all para descendants of div children. NOTE: The location path //para does not mean the same as the location path /descendant::para. The latter selects the first descendant para element; the former selects all descendant para elements that are the first para children of their parents. ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
