Description Felix Sasaki 2006-11-01 14:57:07 UTC
See thread at .
Original comment:
Suppose we have global rules such as 
<its:rules its:version="1.0">
		<its:translateRule selector="//msg/notes" translate="no"/>
		<its:locNoteRule locNoteType="description" selector="//msg/data" 
And that the content looks like this:
<msg id="FileNotFound">
		<notes>Indicates that the resource file {0} could not be loaded.</notes>
		<data>Cannot find the file {0}.</data>
	<msg id="DivByZero">
		<data>Invalid parameter.</data>
There is no notes field in the second msg element.  Do we say somewhere in the spec what is supposed to happen in this case (since there *is* an element that matches the selector attribute)?
Comment 1 Felix Sasaki 2006-11-01 16:30:36 UTC
Discussed at . Current position: no need to have new mechanisms (e.g. error conditions), maybe a "best practices".
Comment 2 Felix Sasaki 2006-12-20 15:52:26 UTC
Resolved during :
"we don't need BP about XPath in the tagset document, maybe we can have this in the BP document"
Comment 3 Felix Sasaki 2007-02-15 14:38:58 UTC
Moved the issue to BP document.
