Fine - use either XPath or XQuery examples.

If you do that much XML development, surely you can write examples of path 
expressions and data that would take me a month to concoct. That would make 
it a lot easier to discuss this at a concrete level.

If I am badgering, I am only badgering you to say something concrete enough 
to be evaluated. If this bothers you, I can simply ignore your posts, 
nobody has to meet my requirements to post to this list. But I won't have 
anything useful to say in response to your posts unless you get a little 
more concrete.
