The bad thing about Xpath selectors is that they're not CSS selectors,
thus unusable while on CSS related context.
The bad thing about Xpath-like selectors is that they are not either CSS
or XPath selectors, thus they are unusable in general XML styling tasks.

Perhaps you need two selector versions for both XPath and CSS use. BTW
has anyone worked on mappings between the two selector notations?
