Not a problem spatial relationships "can sometimes be" mirrored in an svg... so that parent child etc... do reflect true
spatial relationships but are not likely that way.

If an SVG is a data format not just a presentation format then methods determining spatial relationships should be on the wish list for features!!

Anyone have ideas on how this kind of thing might be accomplished using presently available methods?

NO...NO.......strings" (tag names)  I ment .....that you can look for tag names and their relationship with each other  (Parent -Child ..sibling...etc.

XSLT uses XPATH to find a element or attribute like you would look for a directory in DOS or UNIX!     

look at this.....it will help you......sorry to give you the wrong impression.....please look at the links I sent you .....the first one is for the W3 XSLT site .......this link is to help you understand XPath...

Hmm what I wanted to search for wasnt strings.. exactly but rather elements which conform to certain spacial relationships within the svg
