/ AndrewWatt2000@aol.com was heard to say:
| I posted a comment on the recent XQuery Functions and Operators draft,
| thinking I was simply pointing out a minor typo in the Working Draft.
| Michael Kay's response,
| took me by surprise.
| So ... $64,000 question ... what is an element? And is an "element" a synonym
| of an "element node"?
I don't think I understand your confusion.
The functions and operators in question operate over a data model
composed of "items". Item is used as a general term to mean a node or
a (typed or untyped) simple value.
In the context of the data model and element is an element node.
Be seeing you,
