This function takes as input a node (defaulting to the context node), and returns an XPath expression defining a path to that node from the root of its containing tree (which must be a document node). The path will use expanded QNames so that it is not sensitive to the namespace context.
path() ➔ xs:string
There are no arguments
path($arg as node()?) ➔ xs:string?
The node whose path is to be determined

Notes on the Saxon implementation
Implemented since Saxon 9.4, provided XPath 3.0 is enabled; replaces the extension
saxon:path which is retained for the time being.
