Subject: RE: [docbook] Adding <para> to a <sect1> between <simplesect>


Thanks for catching my oversight.  Yes, I was referring to the optional
XPATH-like syntax.  How would one use the required syntax to access all
the children of an element (I am afraid my experience with XSLT left me
with a better grasp of the XPATH syntax than with the required xpointer

FWIW, note that you're talking about the "xpointer" attribute
on the xinclude element in the XInclude standard [1], and
the only values that an implementation must handle for
this attribute are those defined by the XPointer Framework [2]
and XPointer element() scheme [3] standards, neither of which
would allow the asterisk syntax to which you refer.

It sounds like you are referring to some xpath-like syntax
which is not a standard part of XPointer and which may not
be supported by a given XInclude implementation.
