Questions tagged [xpath]

XPath (XML Path Language) is language for addressing parts of an XML document, designed to be used by both XSLT and XPointer. It also provides basic facilities for manipulation of strings, numbers and booleans. XPath uses a compact, non-XML syntax. XPath operates on the abstract, logical structure of an XML document, rather than its surface syntax.
