Description Frans Englich 2007-10-30 12:53:09 UTC
14.3 fn:namespace-uri reads: Summary: "Returns the namespace URI of the xs:QName of $arg." which to me is a bit confusing, since it returns the namespace URI of the node's name.

I suggest changing it to:

"Summary: Returns the namespace URI of the $arg's name, as obtained using the node-name accessor."

Comment 1 Michael Kay 2007-11-15 22:19:38 UTC
I've been given editorial discretion to fix this. It will be corrected by erratum E15, changing the text (by analogy with fn:local-name) to read: 

"<p>Summary: Returns the namespace URI part of the name of <code>$arg</code>,
as an <code>xs:anyURI</code> value.</p>"

Please close the bug if this resolution is satisfactory.
