           Summary: Add XQuery & E4X features to Safari
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: fclee at dialup4less.com

1) Safari 3 apparently doesn't support the latest JavaScript (ECMAScript)
    The following E4X script is ONLY supported by Mozilla browsers:

var e = <employees> 
 <employee id="1"><name>Joe</name><age>20</age></employee> 
 <employee id="2"><name>Sue</name><age>30</age></employee> 

var names = e..name;  // get all the names in e 

E4X needs to be supported in Safari for parsing XML data vectors via SIMPLE
JavaScript syntax.  This is a valuable asset for interfacing with
cross-platform servers.

2) Support XQuery.  XQuery is the SQL-equivalent for XML.
