self::nospace selects the context node if it is a nospace element, or
nothing if it is not. So its value is a set of zero or one nodes. When
used in a boolean context such as [], a node-set containing one node
evaluates to true and an empty node-set to false. So XXX[self::nospace]
returns those nodes in XXX that are nospace elements.
