1. The node path bar

The node path bar displays the path of

  • selected node if a single node has been selected

  • OR first selected node if a node range has been selected

  • OR node containing the caret otherwise (even if there is a text selection).

The path of a node is

  • the name of the element if the node is an element,

  • #text for a text node,

  • #comment for a comment node,

  • #processing-instruction for a processing instruction node,

preceded by the path of its parent element.

The node path bar is a very convenient tool for selecting and acting on nodes:
