[Interest] Extract only src attribute of an image tag into XmlRole with XPath functions

Hello Federico,
the problem is that the img tag inside the description has been escaped :-(
So, I cannot access it using a query path :-(
If you look at the content of description so can see that instead of having:
<description><img src”…”> … </description>
I have the image escaped:
<description><img src=“ … </description>

So, I think I need something like that:

XmlRole { name: “img”; query: “fn:somefunction( description/string(), ‘some regexp for extract’)” }

But no idea what to use, not event if it’s feasible.
