However I wouldn't dream of asking that that actually happen now, I doubt anyone wants to add a few more years delay:-) the current system has evolved quite well, and works a lot better in practice than it looked like it was going to work when the first drafts of a schemarised version of xpath were floated. I suspect that we have you to thank for that as much as anyone:-) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
