The first para in section 14 says...

"For the illustrative examples below assume an XQuery or transformation operating on a PurchaseOrder document containing a number of line-item elements. Each line-item has child elements called description, price, quantity, etc. Quantity has simple content of type xs:decimal. Further assume that variables $item1, $item2, etc. are each bound to single line-item element nodes in the document in sequence and that the value of the quantity child of the first line-item is 5.0."

Perhaps this is too far away from fn:deep-equal but it is defined

All the best, Ashok

Subject: [F&O] Section 15.3 deep equal examples

I think I've commented on every other draft that deep-equal is an
expensive and useless function to standardise. However this particular
version does at least appear to be self consistent (at last:-) so I
suppose that is something, however the examples still need
clarification, Examples
fn:deep-equal($item1, $item2) returns false.

Since the definition of $item2 has been elided, there is nothing to say
that this has to be false, it could be that the first two items in the
sequence are deep-equal as defined here.
