Re:  Required item type of first operand of '/' is node
Thank you very much Martin and Michael. I think I understand it now.

As always it is astonishing how helpful you gentleman are. Thanks again.

If I may ask Michael, why the warning on namespaces? It's probably a
bit nutty, but I'm currently using them as a way to highlight my XML!

Kind regards,
