:) yeah...

Take the following: (this is a simplification of the XML file I posted


What xpath expression will match the first <e>, without using //

As a point of interest, what kind of performance hit does using // give?  Is
it bad practice to use // ?

Regarding xpath visualiser, I have used that in the past and it is very
useful.  However, it doesnt let me find out the xpath of one element, based
on the position of another - that would be a worthwhile addition.
