Re: XPath query syntax
> That *is* the better syntax, but it didn't work for me (under xalan), It worked, it just didn't select what you expected. select="/textarea/node()[not(br)]" br selects child br nodes so node()[not(br)] selects nodes that don't have a br child nodes, which is all nodes in your example. You could use /textarea/node()[not(self::br)] but its simpler just to use /textarea/text() David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
