Re: XSLT 2.0 empty string
Michael wrote There's actually nothing specific to XSLT 2.0 here: these are all 1.0 expressions where 2.0 gives the same result as 1.0 As with XPath 1.0, when you compare a set of things to a single thing, the result is true if there is at least one match. I think the point of the example was that the expectation was that the variable didn't have a set (sequence) semantic but rather was a string as if string($f) had been applied, due to the as attribute on the xsl:variable (which is a 2.0 feature of course). But I think it's true to say that as="xs:string" does _not_ force an empty sequence to coerce to an empty string, isn't it?
