           Summary: PI name test must require string literals that satisfy
                    NCName rules
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath
        AssignedTo: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com
        ReportedBy: jim.melton@acm.org
         QAContact: public-qt-comments@w3.org


Bug 5269 (http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5269) reported the fact
that the name test processing-instruction("123ncname") is a syntactically-valid
XPath (and XQuery) expression, even though the string literal "123ncname"
cannot be transformed into a valid PITarget (which must be an NCName).  

We've closed Bug 5269 because it was reported as an XQueryX problem, which it
is not.  This bug was opened to capture the problem for XPath.
