In XPath 1, those types apply only to expressions. The types of the
XML being worked on are only node and string.
In XPath 2, however, the XML pieces get types as well; besides node
and string, there is also most of the WSX2 gamut.

no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that
they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. --The Hobbit
