Here are the answers submitted to 'Grabbing syntax - XPath, Selectors,
what?' (the public) for Doug Schepers.



---------------------------------
I would expect to use
----
I would expect the attribute to hold a value in the following syntax



 * ( ) CSS Selectors, as used in CSS3 (the full deal, with negation and
everything)W3C Working Draft 15 December 2005; Last Call Ends 16 January
2006
 * (x) XPath 1.0 because, well, its XML! W3C Recommendation 16 November
1999
 * ( ) XPath 2.0, because types matter and schemas are good. W3C Candidate
Recommendation 8 June 2006; CR ends 28 February 2006 
 * ( ) XQuery, because SQL is wonderful W3C Candidate Recommendation 8
June 2006; CR ends 28 February 2006 
 * ( ) IDREF because I would expect it all to be in the same document
 * ( ) A URI with a fragment identifier pointing to the ID of the element
because anything useful will have an ID, surely
 * ( ) A syntax of my own invention, or one you foolishly omitted to list
above despite its clear advantages (give details)

Rationale: 
Well supported by XML tools.  People already familiar with XSL will
already know it.
