Indeed, although in XPath foo[@bar=sheep] is correct. Actually, you  
raise a good example since CSS allows you to say foo[bar~=sheep],  
(note the tilda), which is correct for matching the substring  
contents of string separated list attributes like class and rel.

I will be happy to chip in on documenting this in the Wiki, but my  
todo list is really busy so I might not get round to writing  
something of any quality for too long. If someone else is able to  
start it I'll try and chip in.
