Subject: [Mono-list] Mono 2.0 and XmlDocument.SelectSingleNode - XPath error




this is the 3rd mono-related error I found in one ~500 line web project of mine, and it's still not working :)


I have a well-formatted xml file, and i'm loading it into an XmlDocument:


XmlDocument _x = new XmlDocument();



on Ms.net 2.0/3.5, it's working like this:


string _total = _x.SelectSingleNode("/response/totalresults").InnerText;


on Mono, I needed to write a workaround:


XmlNode total = _x.SelectSingleNode("//totalresults");

string _total = total.InnerText;



on Mono, SelectSingleNode simply returns null if it gets a full xpath, but works if it's a global search pattern. Why?





with regards
