I received this mail in answer of my xml-dev posting, but never saw
it reaching the list, despite CC: It does not appear in the archives, too.
So this is my forward :)

| It yields (unless there is some undetected difference from TEI pointers
| which I've missed) the fourth YEAR element within the third ISSUE
| within the second ARTICLE directly contained within the root element.
| In other words, you have your parameter groups backwards.
| The result is the element named, not its tags.  The children of
| the element are part of the element, so they are addressed, as a
| package.
