let's say we have XML document has line that looks like this

<elem attr="_str_"/>

using xpath query "//*[contains (@*, 'str')]" will find that element, however if that XML line looks like this

<elem id="123" attr="_str_"/>

xpath will fail finding the element!

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

Output is correct. read up on the conversion of nodesets to strings in the xpath specs
