    Can anyone clarify if these are true and perhaps add to the list of
    XPointer supported parsers/transformers:


    For parsers:
    * Xerces will allow elements to be accessed if they have an xml:id
    attribute
    * xmllint allows elements to be accessed with full xpointer syntax,
    e.g.
    <xi:include href="authent.xml#xpointer(//connection[@name='cat'])"
    parse="xml/>


    For transformers:
    * xalan doesnt have xpointer support
    * xsltproc has full xpointer support
    * saxon has limted support, allowing reference to an ID shortname
    which is declared in a DTD as xs:id type.

    I find variable support for the <xi:include href="..." parse="xml"
    xpointer="..."/>

    kind of syntax as well; surprisingly different from the <xi:include
    href="...#xpointer(...)"/> support. Is the 'xpointer' attribute not
    standard on an xi:include?

    cheers
