Method Detail


public static ValueRepresentation nodeSet(ValueRepresentation frag)
Convert a result tree fragment to a node-set. This is a hangover from XSLT 1.0; it is implemented as a no-op.

                                ValueRepresentation value)
Return the type of the supplied value: "sequence", "string", "number", "boolean", "external". (EXSLT spec not yet modified to cater for XPath 2.0 data model)
