    I don’t exactly understand what your question is about, but I wonder: Is the library required to use XPath, or would something similar to XPath work, too?

  • Okay, I think in that case the question should not get the "xpath" tag -- it should only be used if the software has to work with XPath. (Same with json -- it should only be used if the software has to work with JSON.)
