Erik: I reread the section
13:05:20 [Steven]
... the thing I was suggesting was an example that demonstrates the problem.

... the key role is the tree of binds pointing to things,
13:07:42 [Steven]
... the example with capitals is one we could use to illustrate the problem.
13:07:56 [Steven]
... my example is not entirely realistic.
13:08:04 [Steven]
... setvalue isa bit contrived

13:09:35 [Steven]
Steven: I'd be happy with a better example if you can come up with one.
13:10:29 [Steven]
Erik: THe problem definitely occurs. THe trick is to find a realistic example.
13:10:35 [Steven]
13:10:39 [Steven]
13:11:30 [Steven]
Erik: The text should make it very clear.
13:11:51 [Steven]
Steven: WIll it be hard to find a realistic example?
13:11:59 [Steven]

Topic: setvalue on a nodeset
13:13:43 [Steven]
13:15:08 [Steven]
Steven: As Erik points out, there is a way using @iterate
13:15:36 [Steven]
... there is a backwards compatibility issue if we just change setvalue now
13:15:48 [Steven]
Steven: Leave as is?
13:15:54 [Steven]
Erik: Include an example!
13:16:10 [Steven]

Topic: Alert MIP Proposal
13:16:27 [Steven]
13:18:48 [Steven]
Steven: While thinking about adding alert to the model, it struck me that alert is part of a greater group, and why not the others, label, hint, etc.
13:19:39 [Steven]
Steven: This has a lot of stuff to think about so maybe it's better if you go off and read it and we discuss next time.
13:19:54 [Steven]
Erik: Are multiple constraints already in XForms 2?
13:19:56 [Steven]

13:20:08 [Steven]
