Description Richard Tobin for XML Core WG 2005-05-03 14:24:04 UTC
6.2.3, parent property
What should the value of the parent property be if [parent] is unknown
or has no value?  Obviously this can't happen with the infoset of an
XML document, but it can with an infoset created by (for example) 
converting an XPath data model (as in 6.2.5).  Similarly for attributes
in 6.3.3.
Comment 1 Norman Walsh 2005-06-20 18:46:14 UTC
They should be the empty sequence in that case. The draft has been updated to
reflect that.

Please let us know if this resolution is not satisfactory.
