Yep, and the URL is still there:


(Thanks to Mike Kay's XSLT reference where I have found it!).

And we are back to the XML representation of XPath.

At the end of the day, XPath, W3C XML Schema, Relax, TREX, ... are all
vocabularies that capture the structure of XML documents and examplotron
is yet another one that has a syntax a little bit closer to its roots
(i.e. the instance documents).

Thanks for this interesting reminder.
