I just went through this myself.  Dimitre N.  set me straight on a MS
newsgroup.  You need to tell DOM to accept and use XPath expressions.  In VB
it would be something like this although I don't know the exact VB syntax.

XMLDoc.setProperty("SelectionLanguage", "XPath")

Hi all,
	I'm using MSXML3 latest build to perform some
DOM Manipulation. I'm having a few problems using an XPATH
query string.

Set oDOMList = oDOM.selectNodes("ancestor::div")

I thought the XPATH Query "ancestor::wml" would select all the 'div'
ancestors of the context node if they exist. Instead I get an error:

expected token 'eof' found ':'.
ancestor ->:<-:div

Has anyone any ideas why this error has popped up ?
