USE of system.xml.xpat h

Hi Friends,
When we need the xpath namespace as we can traverse the xml document using xmldocument object like using selectSingleNod e or selectNodes methods. In system.xml.xpat h namespace we have to use XPathNavigator , XPathExpression , XPathNodeIterat or class to get the same result what we get it thru selectNodes ....and that too iterator can be traversed in forward direction only.

Please tell me the usage of system.xml.xpat h other than performance.

Enjoying XML.....

Hehe, as a matter of interest, SelectNodes is just a wrapper around
XPathNavigator :)
XPathNavigator allows more advanced things to be done, say caching
compiled XPath expressions, adding sorting to selections, extending by
providing custom XPath extension functions etc.
