Here is a portion of my XML...



Basically, there are many attribute definitions in the XML. Each has its own type.
I wish to pull out the value of displayvalue for specifc types...

//attributedefinition/[type='Alive']

Will get me the attributedefinition. But I was wondering is it possible to get the displayvalue all in one XPath expression?

Thanks.
