Re: Relative XPATH between 2 nodes

If you are only needing it to work on the given document then I think in general for two element nodes, the shortest relative Xpath can always be expressed in the form xxx::*[n] where xxx is one of a ancestor self preceding following descendant and n is a positive integer so you only have to find the two nodes decide whether one is or is not an ancestor of the other and then use the appropriate xxx axis. Travel along that axis until you find teh second node, then you kjnow what number to use for n.
