Description

The fn:current function returns the current item. For an outermost expression, the current item is always the same as the context item, which can be represented with ".". However, within a predicate, or on the right-hand side of the / operator, the current item is generally different from the context item. Note: this is an XSLT-only function; it is not available in XQuery or XPath.
