If the node does not exist in the DOM tree, then a response status of NOT_EXIST will be returned

If no VALUE or ATTRIBUTE keyword are present a response status of EXIST will be returned.

If no ATTRIBUTE keyword is present and a VALUE keyword is present, a case insensitive comparison is done between the node value and the VALUE keyword value. If they are equal then a response status of EQUAL is returned, else a NOT_EQUAL is returned.

If no VALUE keyword is present and ATTRIBUTE keyword is present, then the existence of the attribute is done and an EXIST or NOT_EXIST response status is returned.

If both a VALUE and ATTRIBUTE keyword are present a value comparison of the attribute value is done and an EQUAL or NOT_EQUAL response status is returned.
