XSLTForms 1.4 has its own XPath 1.0 parser written in XSLT 1.0 generating
embedded Javascript object creations.
XSLTForms 1.5 will (very soon) come with an XQuery/XPath 3.1 parser
written in Javascript generating embedded Javascript arrays which can
easily be serialized in XQueryX notation.

  XSL Friends,
  What kinds of advice can you offer on the question of parsing XPath
  in XSLT?
  I am currently having to interpret XPath or (more likely) an XPath
  subset into an abstract representation that can be rewritten into
  various forms. Naturally I would like to do this out of a parse tree
  or the functional equivalent, represented in some sort of XML, since
  serializing that back out is easy enough. It is producing that tree
  that is a problem. I need a parser for XPath or if not for all of
  XPath, then at least for my subset -- which includes namespaces. So
  even if partial the model must expose names and namespaces to the
  extent that a path rewriter can (for example) map into a new set of
  namespace prefixes --
  Any thoughts? Open source projects I should take a look at? Have the
  community-standards initiatives captured any good work in this area?
  Best regards, Wendell
