The line <Property Select="."/> returns the body of the element in the schema that is being enumerated. For example, within a ForEach statement such as <ForEach Select="CHOICES/CHOICE">, specifying <Property Select="."/> would return the text of one of the conditionals.

If a property cannot be found, a subelement of the current element in the schema enumeration is evaluated whose name is equal to the text specified by Select. For example, if a Field element has no property called Default, then <Property Select="Default"/> will also search for a subelement called Default and render its body text if found.

The following line of code returns the Name property from the current field or view.

<Property Select="Name"/>
