Re: [xml-dev] XPath/XQuery/XSLT fn:node() question

No it just mean that attribute have a parent (the relation parent/child is not symmetric because of attributes)

Whats really confusing is the element constructors in both XSLT and XQuery treat children which are attribute nodes as children

<foo>{ attribute {"a"}{"b"} , "c" }</foo>

<foo a="b">c</foo>

So obviously that means attributes are child nodes :)
