Description (last modified by dmethvin)

I am not able to succeed in xpath searches with axes. For example with simple searches as:

alert ($("div/descendant::p").size());

I obtain the following error.

f has no properties (line 697) -> if ( f.constructor != String )

I am using the following version: $Date: 2006-08-25 23:51:03 -0400 (Fri, 25 Aug 2006) $

That's correct - jQuery doesn't support the (explicit) descendant axis, instead, you can write the above using a combination of XPath and CSS Selectors: $("div p") or more simply: $("div p")

I don't really plan on including it, simply because it would add wait to the overall size of the file, without really adding any benefit.

Ok, and ancestor:: ancestor-or-self:: axis is supported? is better to use .ancestors()?

Correct, please use the additional methods for this, as opposed to the selectors.
