Description Michael Dyck 2008-10-07 07:58:55 UTC
XDM 6.7.1 specifies the handling of empty Text Nodes (Text Nodes whose
content is the zero-length string).

6.7.3 (Construction from an Infoset) contains two identical reminders of
this treatment (under 'content' and at the very end of the section).
However, 6.7.4 (Construction from a PSVI) has no such reminder.

It would make more sense if each had one reminder.

See Bug 5978 for justification and history.
Comment 1 Anders Berglund 2009-02-02 19:33:13 UTC
Resolved as per your suggestion; the last paragraph in 6.7.3 is removed and is inserted as the last paragraph of 6.7.4.
Comment 2 Michael Dyck 2009-02-05 08:32:47 UTC
Okay, closing.
