Andrew,

Correct on both counts. This is fixed for our next publish.

Since 'relevant' expects a boolean result, the correct syntax is:
relevant="my:payment/@as = 'credit'"

Reading the new WD, I noticed that in the example in Section 2.7 there 
are some brackets missing. I think that 

   relevant="my:payment/@as == 'credit'" 

should be replaced by 

   relevant="my:payment/[@as == 'credit']"   

as it is written in section 2.5. 
But I must confess that I didn't try wheater it would work in that way, 
too.


Hi Roman, 

I think there are errors in your suggested correction, as well as in the new
WD 

First it is, as I understand it, illegal in XPath to follow a "/" with a
predicate. 

Second the use of "==" as an equality test is not an XPath 1.0 construct, to
the best of my knowledge. In XPath "=" is used and I think the WD needs to
be corrected in that regard, since I understand the intent is to follow
XPath 1.0 syntax.
