Try this:   "//*[myTagName]"

There's an XPath tester on the MSDN site, which is pretty handy for testing
these things.  Look at:

Subject:  XPath question..perhaps naive..

Hey there..

I'm building a sort of trigger/propagation mechanism for an in-memory DOM..
and along the way have a perhaps naive XPath question..

is there an XPath that would select all parent nodes having a certain
sort of the reverse of ".//myTagName"

if this is not the appropriate forum for a question such as this..
sorry.. but please tell me where a more appropriate forum could be found.
