- Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Question for the XPath and DOM folks
If it returns a nodeset containing one text node should be returned then where does it come from and what is the node's parent? In the DOM the <foo> element has 3 children; 2 text nodes and 1 CDATA node. Your suggestion implies that the XPath query creates a new DOM node.
Suppose we do create the new node. What happen when we query its parent? If the parent is <foo>, what happens when we ask it for its children do we get our original 3 or the newly created text node?
I wonder what Jeni's right answer will be...

Let's start with the wrong opinions before Jeni says the "right" thing :-)
In my opnion it should return a nodeset containing one text node with "bar
The spec says that CDATA sections are treated as character data and that a
node cannot have a sibling which is also a text node.
And I might be just finding another XML-SPY xpath bug :-) do you guys see it
returning 3 text nodes ?
PS: You have the dreaded file:// preapended so following my Master-Jedi
advice I'd say that it returns "invalid xpath expression" :-)
