(1.1) Xptr does not have abbreviated syntax for 'following-sibling',
especially for so combination with it, as
Thus mark plus is necessary for usability.

(1.2) Mark plus has the different meaning, than
because last expression finds several TAG,
but mark plus finds only _first_ TAG.
Thus mark plus is necessary for functionality.

(2) Expressions with function 'contains' is less usable (is more bulky),
than expression with braces
<a href="./a.htm#:h3{part of header}">
<a href="./a.htm#:img{k/m/n/pic.jpg}">
Imagine 'contains' in path !

(3) There is no visual comfort,
if path-es before and after #: use identical separator slash.
It's necessary to prefer different separators,
e.g. slash before and dot after for usability, i.e.
it's necessary to prefer
<a href="a/b/c/d.htm#:html.body.p.em">
<a href="a/b/c/d.htm#:html/body/p/em">
