Description Frans Englich 2005-10-25 12:43:16 UTC
The fourth example in ` Examples' appears to have a type. It reads: 
fn:min(xs:float(0.0E0), xs:float(-0.0E0) can return either positive or negative 
I think it should be: 
fn:min((xs:float(0.0E0), xs:float(-0.0E0))) can return either positive or 
negative zero. 
That is, I think one pair of parentheses and one right parenthesis is missing.

It's just a right paenthesis that's missing.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2005-10-25 18:46:56 UTC
I think Frans is right and Colin is wrong. You have to say min((1,2)) to get the
min of a literal sequence.
