I prefer Xpath above CSS.

What stuck to my non-expert mind after a one time read of the document including
the comments at the bottom:

- XPath better fits in the family of other specs like for example Xforms.
- Xpath does namespaces nicer, way important for the semantic web.
- Xpath generally more future oriented
- The biggest market share of CSS implementations and also CSS knowledge is 'not
too well': not a smart brick to build houses with.
- the status of general Xpath implementations available
- What Mozilla uses for XBL (FireFox being a leading browser)
