/ David Carlisle <davidc@nag.co.uk> was heard to say:
| So basically if I use document()  to load the document
| <A>012</A>
| then I know in XSLT1 that string(A) is "012" in all processors.
| In XPath2 it could be anything, from an error to whatever is the
| canonical lexical form of whatever type some schema applied.
| And from XSLT I don't get to control that. this is a massive backward
| step in interoperability.

You want the opposite of "make sure this schema has been applied." You
want "make sure no schema has been applied." This is the "my
stylesheet only works on strings" option. Yeah, that makes good sense,
I think.

                                        Be seeing you,
