Hi, 
I have been developing in postgresql for a very short time. I am
currently having problems that I believe can be resolved with the right
query structure but as of yet have not been able to figure it out.
I am using xpath(xpathExpression, xml, Array[Array[]]) function form
8.3.7 (This is the version that I am currently implementing)
This function returns an xml[] ... However, the problem is that in the
xml array return I get the valid return values that I am looking for but
I also get empty sets. How can I return only the sets that returned
valid???? 
Example of output: 
Id | xml[] 
1 | <Root/> 
2 | <Root/> 
3 | {} 
4 | {} 
Etc..... 
I want to only return the rows that did not return {} 
Any help with this would be appreciated.... 
Thank you.
