Hello All,

When trying to create another XPath implementation I stumbled upon the 
somewhat complex conversion in paragraph 3.5: Booleans. To compare a 
boolean and a node-set, both are converted to Booleans. For all 
operators, including >= and <=. Can anyone tell me what:

    True >= False
    False >= True


    False <= True
    True <= False


IMO, paragraph 3.5 could have been simpler if all comparisons with >= 
and <= first would have been converted to number. Would make the 
paragraph shorter as well.


Thank you very much for any anwsers,

Berend. (-:
