In Xpath2, there was no super-concise method of extracting the position of a ranging variable in a for expression. For example, in the expression "for $i in $seq return [expression]", you could not use $i/position() to give you the position of $i. Instead you had to rewrite as "for $n in 1 to count($seq)"... and then use $n or $seq[$n] as needed. I'm writing to ask whether there is any new method in Xpath3 that provides a more concise method of referencing the position of a bound range variable. -David -- "A false conclusion, once arrived at and widely accepted is not dislodged easily, and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held." - Cantor's Law of Preservation of Ignorance.
