Description John Cowan 2005-09-21 15:59:56 UTC
The relevance of XML 1.1 to F&O has to be the different significance of names in
XML 1.1.  However, F&O imports all its definitions from XML Schema Part 2
version 1.0, which definitely refers only to XML 1.0.  Therefore, either the
reference to XML 1.1 should be removed as irrelevant, or an alternative
definition of the name datatype should be provided that provides XML 1.1 names
as an option, overriding the XML Schema definition.

I'm reporting the consensus of the XML Core WG here.

The WGs decided on 9/27 to fix this bug by adding a reference to the note on the subject of XML 1.1 conformance in the
host language documents -- XSLT 2.0 and XQuery.
