Somebody says XPATH provide a better functionality than xql.
I am not sure about this. But lack of functions such as "like"
to compare strings, and nested condition (i.e. a [] inside a [])
makes it difficult to select some specified nodes with XPATH. One can make
extensions to XSLTs to overcome some of them (such as string A like string
B), but not always. Why don't the XPATH, allow using of nested conditions?
