So, for any given XML document, (e.g. the fragment below),

If, I've "drilled" my way back up to the "document element node"???

Do I have the correct test below? or do I need the:
".. and not(parent::*)"

Will test true only if you are on the <foo> element (it has a parent, the root; but that parent is not an element and fails a parent::* test)


Will test true for any element node, the <foo> element or any other.

I hope this is enough: it's a bit tough for me to understand your exact use case.

Using the other suggested approach, testing node-identity with generate-id(), you could say


which will also test true only for the <foo> node (since it's the only element child of the root).
