Hi Martin,

This is a response to the following issue, which you raised here:

Here is the text of the point to which I am responding here:

[7] Attributes: processing is described differently from what
      happens in the case of XML. Whitespace normalization is done before
      resolution of character references in XML; character references
      can be used to protect various whitespace characters from attribute
      normalization. This should be alligned with XML. (also, it should
      be mentioned how this normalization is (or is not) dependent on
      the type of the attribute)

The short answer:

      Nice catch, we'll fix it.

The long answer:

This was also mentioned by Michael Rys in the following message:

The XQuery Working Group has decided to change our specification to do 
whitespace normalization first and then expand entity references.

In section of the WD you were commenting on, this involves 
interchanging rules 1 and 2.

Please let me know if this response is not satisfactory.


On behalf of the XML Query Working Group
