hi,

I used xpath expression:
//Object1/@name[contains(.,'"')]
to test if the Object1 name attribute contains "
It does not return the first Object1.

However, if I use expression:
//Object1/@name[contains(.,'"')]
It gives correct object.

Why?

<test>
<Object1 name="&quot;AA&quot; BB">11</Object1>
<Object2 name="&quot;AA&quot;">22</Object2>
<Object1 name = "CC">33</Object1>
</test>
