I quote from the announcement below:

* XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language:
  A non-XML, Perl-like syntax for querying ...

"Perl-like syntax"?

I like Perl quite a lot myself.
But I am not sure I would have used that phrase.
It is neither true, nor likely to be seen as an favorable comment on the
XQuery syntax. 


Hopefully helpfully yours,
Steve

There is nothing so practical as a good theory.  Comments are by me, 
not Fidelity Investments, its subsidiaries or affiliates.
