Description Abel Braaksma 2016-02-22 00:32:07 UTC
The typo is in the Note in this section, capital "I" is missing after the period:

Implementations should return negative zero for xs:float("-0.0E0"). But because [XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition] does not distinguish between the values positive zero and negative zero. implementations may return positive zero in this case.
Comment 1 Abel Braaksma 2016-02-22 00:39:42 UTC
Same typo in same Note in section " Casting to xs:double" and in two times the same sentence under section "18.1 Constructor functions for XML Schema built-in atomic types".

Thanks, fixed.
Comment 3 Michael Kay 2016-07-21 15:45:31 UTC
The fix was incorrect - the period should have been a comma.
