This should teach you 80% of everything xpath you need to know :)

And here is updated version of star its now namespace aware and only uses local-name() ... and skips adding a bunch of xmlns attributes and its more indented look, example

# star /*[ local-name() = "sub-group-tree" and position() = 1 ] /*[ local-name() = "fake" and position() = 1 and @rocks = "diamons" ] /*[ local-name() = "fake" and position() = 1 and @watch = "ebolex" and @id = "delicious" ] /*[ local-name() = "fake" and position() = 1 and @teeth = "wood" ] /*[ local-name() = "niagra" and contains(string(), " peels ") ]

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
