Could I ask you what language this is written in and where I find its
semantics, please?

I'm curious as to why the element name "a" is in quotes but the
attribute name "href" isn't, and why one of the XPath expressions
"title" is in quotes and the other one "../@code" isn't, and how you
create three nodes with only one call on "new". I would also be
interested to see how this kind of language manages the static and
dynamic context.
