Subject: Re: [xml-dev] Question for the XPath and DOM folks
>Than there can only be one answer to Dare's question, which is what I gave.
Let's explore your answer then. So if I have a W3C XML Document Object Model (DOM) implementation containing the XML
<foo> bar <![CDATA[ baz ]]> quux </foo>
and query it with the following XPath
I should get back a single text node containing "bar baz quux". So a few questions from an application programmer
1.) Is this text node a DOM text node or some DOM incompatible XPath node?
2.) Does this node have a parent? If so is its parent a DOM node? If so who are its children and is the returned node one of its children?
Based on your answers to these questions I may have one or two more.
