Yea, I knew about SQL/XML. I was thinking more about intra-column indexing
-- so if I have an XML column I could write an efficient WHERE clause on the
value of a specific descendant element value. I don't believe SQL/XML
defines a way to ddefine indexes using, say, an XPath expression.

Best regards,
Brian Maso
