    Hi there,

    was wondering if the XQuery processor in Saxon8.1.1 would accept the BEFORE operator in XQuery...
    For example, it's used in the Xmark query below:

    FOR $b IN document("auction.xml")/site/open_auctions/open_auction
    WHERE $b/bidder/personref[@person="person18829"] BEFORE
    RETURN <history> $b/reserve/text() </history>

    If not, is there an equivalent rewrite for BEFORE?

    Thank you.

      This query would appear to be using a very old version of the language. For example, upper case keywords were dropped about 3 years ago.

      The "before" operator is probably the operator now written as "<<".
