Subject: [xsl] Different results with different processors|

I'm comparing the processing the same stylesheet using Xalan and libxslt (xsltproc)
Xalan produces expected output. xsltproc has some issues. Xalan interprets this expression correctly (at least /I/ think it does... :) libxslt does not...
I find it hard to articulate what I am seeing. I'll do my best... What is getting subsequently selected by libxslt isn't the same thing as what xalan selects. If I rewrite the expression to pick a specific set of nodes <xsl:apply-templates select="foo" /> I get the expected result. If I re-write it to use a for-each ...
<xsl:for-each select="node()[name() != 'bar']"> <xsl:apply-templates select="." /> </xsl:for-each>
I don't understand the difference between xalan and libxslt's interpretation of the statement, and why re-writing it makes all the difference. Am I doing something wrong? Am I hitting on a incompatibility I am unaware of?
