Ok, so this is how I learn XPATH, try, fail, try, fail, (repeat until I
have had enough) and finally ask.

Try, try, try again, but don't be an idiot about it...

I have a doc, AD pub channel,
<nds dtdversion="3.5" ndsversion="8.x">
<source>
<product version="?.?.?.?">DirXML</product>
<contact>Novell, Inc.</contact>
</source>
<input>
<add class-name="Organizational Unit" event-id="Active
Directory##120008ba40d##0"
src-dn="OU=Computers,OU=GLEN,OU=North,DC=americas,DC=a cme,DC=corp">
<association>635cbaf92a11e6489e520072afad38ea</association>
<add-attr attr-name="OU">
<value type="string">Computers</value>
</add-attr>
</add>
</input>
</nds>

I want to 'inject' an @dest-dn node.

Cannot quite figure out the XPATH to specify the current node in a
do-append-xml-text action.

I tried

@dest-dn and a text value of the eDir syntax (via ParseDN).
/@dest-dn
../@dest-dn
add/@dest-dn
/add/@dest-dn
../add/@dest-dn

with a before="association" since I always have an association node
coming out of AD in the Pub-Event transform.

It is obviously quite simple and straightforward and escaping me at the
moment.

Why you ask? Need to send the add event from the AD driver out the eDir
driver into another tree. (Trying to mirror AD structure in another
eDir tree with a flat tree in the middle! Enjoy life!! Why do things
the easy way, when there is fun to be had!)
