The above says it all. The context node has no descendants, so you can shorten the definition a bit: the following axis of an attribute contains all descendants of the root of the tree (that is, all element, text, comment and processing instructions in the tree) that occur after that attribute in document order. Note that this includes the descendants of the attribute's parent element. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
