The root /

To select the root node of the XML 1.0 specification at you can use this URI:

/ is primarily useful in compound XPointers as a basis from which to start. In fact, if no absolute location term is included in a compound location term, / is assumed. However, root() can also be used to select the entire document in a URI that uses | to indicate that only a part is normally loaded. For example:|xptr(/)
