In Brief

  • There are four data types in XPath 1.0:

    • Numbers

    • Strings

    • Booleans

    • Node-sets

  • These node types are supported in XPath 1.0:

    • The root node

    • Element nodes

    • Attribute nodes

    • Processing instruction nodes

    • Comment nodes

    • Text nodes

    • Namespace nodes

  • Here are some additional concepts from this chapter:

    • Document order is the order of nodes as they appear in the original document.

    • Documents are handled by XML processors as node trees.

    • Infosets hold the data that an XML document contains in standard form.
