 Different results with different processors
I'm comparing the processing the same stylesheet using Xalan and
libxslt (xsltproc)

Xalan produces expected output. xsltproc has some issues. Xalan
interprets this expression correctly (at least /I/ think it does... :)
libxslt does not...

<xsl:apply-templates select="node()[name() != 'bar']" />

I find it hard to articulate what I am seeing. I'll do my best... What
is getting subsequently selected by libxslt isn't the same thing as
what xalan selects. If I rewrite the expression to pick a specific set
of nodes
<xsl:apply-templates select="foo" /> I get the expected result. If I
re-write it to use a for-each ...

<xsl:for-each select="node()[name() != 'bar']">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="." />

It behaves as expected.

I don't understand the difference between xalan and libxslt's
interpretation of the statement, and why re-writing it makes all the
difference. Am I doing something wrong? Am I hitting on a
incompatibility I am unaware of?
