Description Priscilla Walmsley 2015-02-18 13:56:52 UTC
The map:merge description has the following 2 examples:

map:merge(($week, {7:"Unbekannt"}))
map:merge(($week, {6:"Sonnabend"}))

Should the word "map" not appear before the left curly brace, as in:

map:merge(($week, map{7:"Unbekannt"}))
map:merge(($week, map{6:"Sonnabend"}))

...or is there a shorthand syntax I missed?

Thanks, yes, will fix.

You can be excused for missing the shorthand syntax, it was only in the spec for a few weeks some time in 2013.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2015-02-19 18:06:29 UTC
I have now fixed this editorial error in both the F+O 3.1 and the XSLT 3.0 specifications.
