xpath: how to express text nodes?

consider:

text 1 text 2 text 3

how can you express the textnode in xpath ?

-------------Problems Reply------------

As far as i know , all text in a node are collectively grouped up as a single text node. They are not hierarchical so there wont be more than 1 text node in any single element.

You might need to parse the text yourself using an xpath string function
