As a general rule, if you're processing more than one document, then it's
best to avoid path expressions beginning with "/", as you and your readers
will both get confused about which document "/" is referring to (the answer
is: the root of the document containing the context node). Instead, bind
variables to the root nodes of both documents, and use path expressions that
start with a variable reference.
