Wouldn't a more interactive approach be to provide an online tool that lets you trace each step of any real XPath expression (by clicking on it), including axes and predicates, lighting up node 'hits' (against a selected source XML) on a tree view as you go? Or perhaps a more abstract view helps with the learning process.
