[xsl] question about select

I am using xalan and I have noticed that if I use a selection like this:

<xsl:for-each select="child::*[@field_name!='id' and @field_name!='smallName']">

That the result excludes not only those elements with an attribute called "field_name" which is equal to "id" or "smallName", but also those elements which do not have an attribute "field_name" at all. Is this the same in all parsers?

I don't actually have a real problem with this at all, so much as I am curious because I didn't expect the behavior.
