You generally can't perform an XPath  _rooted_ at a given node. You can 
perform one relative to a given node.

If you told us what you were actually trying to accomplish -- gave us a 
sample document and pointed out what you want and what criteria 
distinguish it from other points in the document -- that would actually 
be easier for us to help you with.
