Re: [xml-dev] How to 'invert' an Xpath statement please

> The inverted selection *should* produce:
> ROOT, ELEMENT (With Element 1)

Are you sure you just want an Xpath selection.


is probably what you are looking for, which will return 2 nodes

ROOT and ELEMENT  (With Element 1)

However the ROOT element that is returned is the ROOT element in the
original source document, and so will have two children ELEMENT and

Xpath (on its own) never changes the nodes it selects and the list of
child nodes is part of the node structure, so is never changed.

(you may find xsl-list or xquery-talk better than xml-dev for xpath
