and your expression is div[(heading|para].

No.


div[not(* except (heading,para))]

selects those div for which all children are either heading or para
You can read except as "other than"

not (children other than (heading and para) )


Your expression selects divs that have a heading or para element.


so the results are different if there are no child elements
the original is true and yours is false and different if there are elements other than heading or para when yours would be false and the original true.
