That's sad indeed. I was trying to fetch a specific subnode of an
identified element, but couldn't manage to get that working with
xsltproc (haven't tried with saxon yet), so I was looking for working

(I'm not even sure what the right spelling is to express "second
listitem within a section with id "demo" " using xpointers. And xsltproc
typically doesn't even give an error. It simply ignores the entire
xpointer attribute :-( )

Hasn't there been any recent activity on xpointers recently ? What other
tools for transclusion are people using nowadays ?
