Ashok et al,
Recommendation 2 still needs work. At present it reads as follows:

"2. Do not apply any operations based on date or time types (such as 
indexing) if it is not certain that all of the data has zone offset 
information or if all of the data does not have zone offset information."

The current wording specifies two conditions in which indexing should not 
be done: (a) "if it is not certain that all of the data has zone offset 
information", or (b) "if all of the data does not have zone offset 
information."

I do not think that this is what you mean to say. It is quite reasonable 
to index data under condition (b), in which all the data does not have 
zone offset information.

I think you mean to say the following:

"2. Do not apply any operations based on date or time types (such as 
indexing) to collections of data in which some data items have zone offset 
information and other data items do not have zone offset information."

Please give this one more try.

Thanks,
--Don

The XML Query and the XSL WGs decided that the text on the Wiki page 
was acceptable for publication as a note as long as a couple of changes
were made.  I have made the changes.

Can you publish the material as a note?  Please inform us when that is 
done
and we will add the appropriate reference from the F&O.

All the best, Ashok
