Hi Folks,

Is a "striding" construct dependent on the XML that the construct is applied
to?

Please allow me to explain.

Consider this XML:

<Document>
    <section>
        <title>A</title>
        <section>
            <title>B</title>
        </section>
    </section>
</Document>

This expression:

	//section

yields a sequence in which the items are not disjoint. Hence //section is not
a striding construct, for this XML.

But now consider this XML:

<Document>
    <section>
        <title>A</title>
    </section>
    <section>
        <title>B</title>
    </section>
</Document>

Applying the same construct:

	//section

yields a sequence in which the items are disjoint. Hence //section is a
striding construct, for this XML.

So whether an expression is striding or not depends on the particular XML that
it is applied to. Is that correct?

Or, is //section not striding, regardless of the XML it is applied to?

/Roger
