   $context as node(),
   $ref as element(xi:include),
   $restriction as cts:query?
) as node()*


This function performs a single level expansion of a single XInclude reference. Any XInclude references in the referenced node are not expanded.

context The node that contains the XInclude reference.
ref The XInclude reference to be expanded.
restriction Restriction that control which documents may be considered for inclusion. An exact URI match is first considered if it matches the specified restrictions, followed by the most recent numbered version of that URI that matches the restrictions.
