true but [] does not work on a node set, it works on the current node
list (which being a list is ordered). In the above construct teh current
node list is first constructed by taking teh set in $var and listing the
nodes in document order.

In Xpath 1 the current node list is not a first class object, it can not
be returned as the value of an expression.
