Hi again,

OK. I've got it. An easy demonstration from this query :

let $a := <county name="Devon"/>
let $b := "Devon"

return ($a/@name, $b)

With the -wrap paramter in Saxon, everything becomes clear :

<result:sequence xmlns:result="http://saxon.sf.net/xquery-results" 
    <result:attribute name="Devon"/>
    <result:atomic-value xsi:type="xs:string">Devon</result:atomic-value>

In french : "il ne faut pas mélanger les torchons et les serviettes" :-)

Any hint on my <attribute>{$a/county/district/town/@name}</attribute> 
processing ?

Thank you very much. Good night.
