Re:  Still thinking to object oriented...
Okay, i am sorry.
First i have now this error:

Required item type of first argument of name() is node(); supplied
value has item type xs:string
URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20/#ERRXPTY0004

i am sorry, i will ask my question again with a higher accuracy:


this expression gets me the names of all ancestors from the nodes,
which contain the string "to_search". This was quite okay for me
untill now. But i got new requirements to output also the attributes
to these nodes. Now i need help to transform the expression to output
the real nodes as a nodelist for example like for example the node()
function does.
