Description Michael Rys 2005-05-13 23:26:01 UTC
Trivial embedding: Clarify embedding of Xquery construction. Are they just 
inlined as subelements or are they to be entitized? I assume the later due to 
namespace prefix declarations, but it should be made clear.

Comment 3 Jim Melton 2005-06-27 20:13:32 UTC
An additional paragraph has been added to the XQueryX specification to make it
clear that XQuery expressions embedded in XML documents using the trivial
embedding are handled strictly as strings, thus requiring that all instance of <
and & must be escaped.  The text also makes it clear that there is not and
cannot be a relationship between namespaces declared in the embedding XML
document and namespaces declared and/or used in the embedded XQuery. 

Please let us know if this response is satisfactory. If not, please respond to
this message, explaining your concerns.
