It's the last remaining validation error, and it's in HTML, not in XForms.  It may be simple.  It certainly sounds like something for next year though!
Happy Holidays.

Without looking into the details, this looks like just another agenda item in the new year.  As per current charter and proposed new charter, maintenance of the test suite is an important component of our work.  We had a fantastic round of improvements recently thanks largely to your validator work and Joern's work on Chiba as well as some work we've been doing in Ubiquity XForms.  We still have a few more issues from Joern as well as this one now. 

Generally, the test suite could use more work in a number of areas.  We could continue to improve the coverage of what is tested.  I have some action items to add a few more specific tests, but frankly we could use a thorough scrub of the spec against the test suite to ensure we really do have all the technical requirements captured in tests.  Of course, we'd have to do this as a "second edition" test suite so that we avoid a numerical disconnect between the current test suite and the implementation reports.  FWIW, I think revising the current tests is acceptable even though it may improve or detract from an implementers results relative to the current reports.  There is really no harm in improvement, and in the case of a new failure, the implementer should feel more urgently obligated to patch an implementation to fix any defects uncovered by the revised test.  But adding tests seems to be the stuff of a new edition.   

And once we begin thinking in terms of a second edition test suite, I think it would be worthwhile spending some time addressing the concerns raised about how hard it has been to automate testing for the current tests.  Offhand I don't really know what specific changes are needed, so it is a conversation worth having, though I wouldn't want it to stand in the way of creating new tests.

How about this error: 
  
11.1.a.xhtml:8:65: error: attribute "soap:encodingStyle" not allowed here; expected attribute "dir", "lang", "version" or "xml:lang" 
  
I looked around a bit and don't see why soap:encodingStyle belongs on the xhtml:html element.  SOAP asks for it on the SOAP header, and XForms 1.1 doesn't list it at all in http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms11/#SOAP <http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms11/#SOAP>

Yes, for some reason 5.2.1.c still had the xforms::byte in it, where I thought that had been fixed.  I have just fixed it and updated it, including the zip file. 

Also, we discovered that test 11.9.4.b needed a further adjustment because it was counting on an xforms-submit-error handler running on a replace all submission.  I changed to a replace none submission since the test is looking for an xforms-submit-error in order to be successful.  No replacement functionality is actually needed to determine whether or not the file has been deleted.  I also updated the zip file to include this revision. 

For all tests revised recently, esp. today, we have verified that they work in Ubiquity XForms, so we believe they are all good revisions at this point.

With today's updates after the Teleconference and Editorial Meeting and John and Charlie's changes, here is are the three remaining validation errors: 

3.3.1.d3.xhtml:16:55: error: value of attribute "version" is invalid; token "number1engage" invalid; must be a string matching the regular expression "[1-9]\d*\.\d+"
5.2.1.c.xhtml:59:57: error: value of attribute "type" is invalid; must be an XML QName
3.3.1.d3.xhtml.xhtml:8:65: error: attribute "soap:encodingStyle" not allowed here; expected attribute "dir", "lang", "version" or "xml:lang"

Here is my analysis: 

3.3.1.d3.xhtml intentionally not valid. 

5.2.1.c.xhtml appears to still be in progress by Charlie and John. 

3.3.1.d3.xhtml is an XHTML RNC schema issue, not an XForms issue and I'm not familiar with the use of xhtml:html/@soap:encodingStyle in XHTML.

Subject: XForms 1.1 test suite issues

I've uncovered the following validation errors in the XForms 1.1 test suites in the process of producing and testing the Relax NG XHTML+XForms integration. 

I have recommendations for most, but a few require special examination:
- There are two tests that I believe are no longer used, and are likely present but not referenced. 
- There is a test with binding exceptions that I don't understand.
- There is a test using choices with no contained items that I believe we should consider separately.

Fetch the test suite from http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/Test/XForms1.1/Edition1/zip/TestCases11.zip <http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/Test/XForms1.1/Edition1/zip/TestCases11.zip>  and save this file in the same directory.  Unzip both and the links from this document will take you to the test cases.

Leigh.
