%% @doc Some core xpath functions that can be used in xpath expressions
%% created on 2008-05-07
%% Default functions.
%% The format is: {FunctionName, fun(), FunctionSignature}
%% @type FunctionName = atom()
%% @type FunctionSignature = [XPathType]
%% @type XPathType = node_set | string | number | boolean
%% The engine is responsable of calling the function with
%% the correct arguments, given the function signature.
