All I needed, I think, was a push in the right direction.  This one also
seems like a more advanced function, more intended for the development
of tools than for direct execution.  

I think I will add this to the document anyway.  I can see where it
might be useful for a user to grab only the form elements of a page.  A
brief explanation of XPath might be in order.

Looking at things from the perspective of a tool builder, I think this
is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  This would make it possible
to create a filter to do several things.  For example, I could write a
filter based on sort-tables that removes the style tags from a page
before handing it to w3 to render.  This might solve the problem of w3
applying styles that are defined in the document even though
w3-honor-stylesheets is nil.
