 [XPath 2.0] Two XPath expressions to the same node
Hi Folks,

Why does this XPath expression return true:

/FitnessCenter/Member[1]/MembershipFee/node() instance of text()

whereas this returns false:

//MembershipFee[1]/node() instance of text()

Both reference the node within the first MembershipFee element; so I would
think they should both return true.
