Description Karl Dubost 2006-05-17 02:13:25 UTC
"The value of the  selector  attribute must be an XPath expression which starts with "/". That is, it must be an AbsoluteLocationPath as described in [XPath 1.0]. This ensures that the selection is not relative to a specific location."

The group has designed an its:selector attribute with an XPath expression. Is there a specific reason to not reuse the select of XSLT?
Comment 1 Yves Savourel 2006-05-31 15:12:57 UTC
From the viewpoint of re-using the name 'select' vs. 'selector'. No reason, except maybe because it's not exactly the same as xsl:select.

From the semantic viewpoint: its:selector is always an absolution XPath expression (never relative) and it always point to an elemnt or an attribute. So it's not exactly the same as xsl:select.
Comment 2 Felix Sasaki 2006-07-13 12:52:15 UTC
This is a response of the ITS working group.
As we explained at
, the selector attribute is always an absolute location path. This is
different to the "select" attribute in XSLT.
