Description Christian Gruen 2014-12-15 19:57:47 UTC
We have been pointed out by a user that base-uri() or document-uri() may trigger an error (FODC0002 or FODC0005) when being called on a document that has been retrieved from a file. The problem happens if the characters of the file name are valid, but invalid as part of a URI:


Is this behavior expected, or even desirable?

Could you expand on the rationale why you think these errors are raised?
Comment 2 Christian Gruen 2014-12-23 17:54:19 UTC
Sorry, Michael, for the hasty bug report. It turns out that the problem was not fn:base-uri, but the call of fn:doc. It could simply be solved by encoding '[' in the argument of the fn:doc function (resulting in doc('%5B%5D.xml')). I am marking this as resolved.
