Case Sensitivity and Blank Spaces in Queries

Queries are case sensitive. This applies to every part of the query, including operators, strings, element and attribute names, and function names.

For example, suppose you try this query:



This query returns an empty set because the name of the document element is bookstore and not Bookstore.

Blank spaces in queries are not significant unless they appear within quotation marks.
