No, I know what XPath is. I've worked a lot with XSL
transforms. What I don't know is how it can be used to
extend the filtering mechanism.
Basically, XPath is a navigational notation for the DOM. I
guess there're 2 kinds of XML involved here: the filter
rules and the actual messages. The goal would be to apply
the rules to the messages and reformat the messages
appropriately, right? Sounds like a job for XSLT.
I think I'm answering my own question here :)
