Hi Steven,

Yes, it is different in two ways.

First, it would be all descendants, not children.

Second, and more more important, the attributes of the node and all its 
descendants are not children of their containing element. But the elements 
are all ancestors (parents, in fact) of their attributes.

Subject:        A node and its children



http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/XForms_2.0#The_xforms-submit_Event

says

"The indicated node and all nodes for which it is an ancestor are 
selected."

Is this different to

"The indicated node and its children are selected."

?
