Hi everyone,

First of all ... Happy New Year to everyone.

We are going through various ITS 2.0 Test Suite examples and we have a question regarding pointers.

For instance, for termInfoPointer, (see the example below) if we use an XPath like this: „../h:ul/h:li”, it selects all „h:li” nodes that there exist (in h:ul tags, of course). The question is, should that be valid for termInfoPointer or should the content provider ensure that the XPath expression resolves to a single node as ITS 2.0 says:

A termInfoPointer attribute that contains a relative selector<http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#selectors> pointing to ***a node*** that holds the terminology information.

So if pointing to multiple nodes is wrong can other implementers share what they do in such a situation (ignore that there is a content error or throw an exception and require valid content)? I guess the simplest solution is to tell users that the document is invalid, however, we could also ignore such errors and allow the system to work with multiple nodes.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <script type="application/its+xml">
  <its:rules xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its" xmlns:h="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" version="2.0">
  <its:termRule selector="//h:h1" term="yes" termInfoPointer="../h:ul/h:li"/>
  </its:rules>
  </script>
</head>
<body>
   <h1>Android</h1>
   <ul>
     <li>Name of the operating system</li>
     <li>Name of a custom Linux kernel</li>
     <li>Name of the mobile phone</li>
   </ul>
</body>
</html>

In the example termInfoPointer points to multiple <li> tags with "../h:ul/h:li", but the specification requires „a node”.

Best regards,
Mārcis ;o)
