Hi Charles,

thanks a lot.

Have not looked at it yet, but I definitely need something
that allows me to express (declaratively) a subgraph
(a tree if you start at a single node) similar to
how XPath works (node tests and all this).

What I am up to is to express 'presentation rules' by
(for example) defining a transformation from a subgraph
(in my case usually a tree) to a DOM instance 
(and from there via XSLT to WAP,HTML,SVG etc).
