It's hard to see
how they could have been made the same, and if they are
different, then operations will work differently on the two
cases. In particular
axes only apply to nodes in a tree, they never relate to
the sequence that is being operated on.
position() only relates to the sequence that is being
operated on, it never relates to the position of a node in a tree.
Both of the above were equally true in XSLT 1, there are
just more places where the difference shows up in XSLT2 as
XSLT2 is a lot more expressive and the sequences are first
I can see it when laid out like that.
Whether its as obvious whilst I'm writing a stylesheet I've yet to find out
?There be witches? as the saying goes.
