while am learning xpath at w3schools, i came across this note
"IE5 and later has implemented that  should be the first node, but according to the W3C standard it should have been !!"
Now i just wanna make sure that above note is still really a concern or this problem has been sorted out by IE to comply with w3 standed?

I couldn't find that quote in the w3c docs, but I think the operative word is "should". Then again, maybe arrays "should" start with 1 as well. (But they do not) This is just "one of those things" AFAIK. Although I would be interested in learning the history of its origins.
