Description Michael Kay 2015-10-12 09:47:24 UTC
The non-normative summary of the casting rules found in XPath 3.14.2 and XQuery 3.18.3 is inaccurate.

For example, it omits to mention that casting a value S to a type T is possible if T is a union type and S is an instance of a member type of T, or if it is castable to a member type of T.
Comment 1 Jonathan Robie 2015-10-27 14:55:00 UTC
Fixed in the internal WD by deleting the non-normative summary and referring only to the normative description in F&O.
