support additional XPath functions - especially 'replace()'!
I'd like greater powers to manipulate the text returned from an XPath statement using a more complete set of XPath functions. If I could pick just one function that really 'must' be supported, then that's the 'replace' function - see http://www.w3schools.com/xpath/xpath_functions.asp#string
I am only just reading these comments, but we have supported XPath 2.0 for a number of versions now. This issue should be resolved with our current support of XPath 2.0. Than you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have. Thank you.

Windward supports only XPATH 1.0. Please upgrade to XPATH 2.0 as this includes a lot of new built-in functions, among other significant improvements. XPATH 2.0 is a W3C recommendation since 2007. In the meantime XPATH 3.0 is already there since Apri/2014, but at least XPATH 2.0 should be the "standard".

While we do not support this in the wizard, you can write any XPath you wish directly.
Also, we do have macros, including replace, that work with all datasources (not just XPath).
