Hi Folks,
From previous posts I have learned that:
1. The capabilities provided by XQuery is a subset of the capabilities provided by XSLT/XPath 2.0
2. The XQuery syntax is a hybrid - it has some XML characteristics but is not XML. 
Norm Walsh notes:  "It's a non-queriable, non-transformable subset of XSLT 2.0".
Given this, I am wondering what niche XQuery is expecting to fill?  /Roger
