XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language
W3C Working Draft 12 November 2003

A.1.1 Grammar Notes
grammar-note: leading-lone-slash

"Therefore, a stand-alone slash, in a leading position, that is followed
by an operator, will need to be parenthesized in order to stand alone,
as in "(/) * 5". "5 * /", on the other hand, is fine."

    What is a "leading position"?

    What is an "operator"?

    If "5 * /" is fine, is "5 * / * 5" fine? 

    This sentence is more than just a helpful note, it actually
    restricts the language. It should probably be given a different
    status.
