Description Yves Savourel 2006-10-05 16:28:16 UTC
--- Summary of the problem:

Both the selector and the rbPointer attributes are described as selecting the ruby base text.

--- Proposed solution:

We remove the rbPointer attribute. It is currently optional and since its function is currently also implemented with the selector
attribute the implementation does not really change (except that we eliminate a potential conflict). Current example would be still
fine. This would be a bug fix not a substantive change.

The people who attended Today's teleconference were in agreement with this change. If there is no dissent by Monday (Sep-25,
15:00GMT) the editors will make the change.
Comment 1 Yves Savourel 2006-10-05 16:35:20 UTC
No objections to removing the rbPointer attribute.
The change has been implemented in the specification.
Comment 2 Yves Savourel 2006-10-05 16:35:55 UTC
I'm satisfied.
Comment 3 Yves Savourel 2006-10-05 16:36:42 UTC
Comment 4 Felix Sasaki 2006-10-06 01:52:25 UTC
Summary: The Working Group agreed that the functionality of the two attributes is identical and decided to remove the rbPointer attribute.
