Re:  One-based indexes in XPath
Thanks to Colin, Michael et al. for your input on this issue.

Personally I am not phased by 1 or 0 though I guess, after your advice, the
XPath 1-based idiom is the one I may as well favor in order to make for a
more seemless interface to my external XPath library.

The woe for me however is having to counter the screams I'll no doubt get
from the library-developer (Javascript) users & also the hassle of
converting indexes on the external library side.  Anyway the hit was going
to come from one side or the other (XSLT or Javascript) so I might as well
go with the XPath 1-based index idiom and get over it.  Since a lot of the
library side uses Javascript native code for Array functions, that will
cost performance there but, oh well, so what; premature optimization is the
root of all evil as someone once said.

Sigh & thanks, Justin Johansson
