Oliver:
Thank you for your comment.  It appears that the compatibility appendix
was not updated when the definition of the function was changed.  We
will fix that.

All the best, Ashok

This comment could be regarded as a follow-up to my post
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-qt-comments/2003Jun/0113.html

Now the situation is the other way around:
sum() returns NaN if the value NaN occurs within the sequence (like in
XPath1)
but appendix B states that NaNs are discarded (this is the definition in
the 
previous version).

Regards,
Oliver Becker
