Thanks for the clarification. Now, there is another misconception,
unfortunately. The path argument to the Node.getNode(String) method is not
an XPath querry but a relative path with no pattern characters allowed. This
is for direct addressing of a single child (or descendent) node. This method
just walks down the node hierarchy without applyiing any pattern matching.
