Unfortunately I have to be able to differentiate between them. I'm also more likely to handle more document-like structures, bibliographic materials, TEI, Docbook, xhtml etc, as such structures are less regular they increase paranoia. So basically the following: Xpath: "/body/a[@href and not(@class)]" Is no more helpful than a path which treats attributes as elements? This may be occasioned by my being set in my ways but I find it hard to believe I wouldn't feel the lack almost immediately, and have that lack grow even more annoying as time went on.
