The problem with this approach is that it works just well enough to lead you into deep trouble when you trip over some non-obvious or counter-intuitive language feature, such as "|" being the union operator in XSLT expressions.

Of course, when one finds oneself in that situation, one should actually consult the spec or a good tutorial on the language. RTFM always applies.

Exactly. It's just that RTFM -- and being able to tell the difference between the questions that the manual is likely to address, and those it's not -- is apparently a lesson that often needs to be learned the hard way. (Of course, you could always try the manual and see where that gets you. Those that have ears, let them hear.)
