Node list notation for examples

Does anybody have a good notation for representing node lists when
making examples of how to use DSSSL procedures?

DSSSL (along with Scheme) has formats for representing numbers,
characters, strings, and lists which makes it easy to write examples
of how to use procedures.  For example, "Example 48" in section of the DSSSL standard contains:

(+ 3 4)		=> 7
(+ 3)		=> 3
(+)		=> 0

The DSSSL standard has 58 examples, but they only cover the expression

How would you, for example, write examples for how to use ancestor,
node-list-first, or empty-node-list?
