a single item. This is often annoying (if you get annoyed by such

So -- if I follow you -- nesting a for expression is a workaround for this gap only some of the time?

In line with the question whether to prefer XPath or XSLT logic, can we see an example where we'd actually prefer to do it in XPath if we could? (I'd welcome entries from anyone.)
