Hi David,

Thanks for spotting this. The error has been fixed in the current Editor's draft at

http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/docs/update-1.1/Overview.xml#deleteInsert

We'd appreciate if you could briefly acknowledge that your comment has been addressed.

Section
http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-update/#deleteInsert
says:
[[
To illustrate the use of the WITH clause, an operation of the general
form:

WITH <g1> INSERT { x y z } DELETE { a b c } WHERE { ... }

Is considered equivalent to:
INSERT { GRAPH <g1> { x y z } } DELETE { GRAPH <g1> { a b c } } USING <g1> WHERE { ... }
]]
However, the grammar requires that the DELETE clause *precede* the
INSERT clause:
