Tsk tsk, first question of the week, and it's about XQuery (ugh). And even a trick question (double ugh).

xQuery is tricky enough; throwing the case sensitivity issue into the mix just adds more to it.

It's not really about XQuery though, it's a trick question which doesn't test anything other than how well you can read things on a Monday morning ;-)

I like the question. I don't think it's a trick question - many people here are so used to using case insensitive collations (stupid defaults!!!) that they can and will be caught by this XML feature. Probably numerous times. I know I have, it's probably the main reason I got it right.
And the second good thing about the question is that it also makes you think about what would have been returned if the case had been correct. I know I was not really sure of that (I'm far from an XML expert!), so I was happy that the lower-/uppercase thing gave me a guaranteed point, and the rest of the question gave me the opportunity to play with the code and see what happens if I change the case - so this has also taught me something about the XQuery data function. (And if I just happen to stumble on it again within a week or so, it might even stick this time).
