   Re: [xml-dev] Question for the XPath and DOM folks

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

And how would you fix it? You have to:
a) Respect the Xpath spec so you can't return 3 TEXT nodes
b) Respect the DOM spec so you have 3 text nodes in the tree
So you have 3 nodes and you must return only one of them.
No way out. No way out.

"An Xpath query applied to a DOM tree can return a different result than an
Xpath query applied directly to an XML document"
