I'm not sure about that at all.  All I know is that the current MSXML uses a
querying language which Microsoft says is based on the XQL proposal[1], and
that the new parser will be using XPath instead.

I get the impression that XPath replaces XQL, but admit to not following
either of the specs closely enough to be able to answer with authority...
