Description Abel Braaksma 2015-03-18 11:22:42 UTC
The resolution of bug 26438 introduced the possibility to declare modes. However, in the signature of 3.6 (xsl:package) this is written as "declared-modes" and in the related text ( Requiring Explicit Mode Declarations) it is written as "declare-modes".

Possibly just a typo, though I vaguely remember a discussion during the telcons of that time whether it should be active (declare-modes) or passive (declared-modes), but can't remember its outcome.

Note that the intro text of xsl:package links forward for other attributes not explained directly under 3.6, but not for this one.

Note: declared-modes: 6 hits, declare-modes: 1 hit.
Comment 1 Abel Braaksma 2015-04-16 17:02:05 UTC
Note, from the WG discussion today, this attribute doesn't appear in the schema for stylesheets.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2015-04-16 22:11:08 UTC
The misspelt reference as "declare-modes" has been corrected, and the attribute has been added to the declaration of xsl:package in the schema for XSLT 3.0.
