           Summary: Behaviour of 'FULLY-NORMALIZED' not well defined in
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 1.1
        AssignedTo: mike@saxonica.com
        ReportedBy: oliver@cbcl.co.uk
         QAContact: public-qt-comments@w3.org

The specification of normalize-unicode states:

  Returns the value of $arg normalized according to the normalization criteria
for a normalization form identified by the value of $normalizationForm

It also refers to:

  See [Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0: Normalization] for a
description of the normalization forms.

However, consider the following query:

  normalize-string('&#x302;', 'FULLY-NORMALIZED')

Normalizing this string does not produce a fully normalized result.  I assume
the correct way to fully normalize this is to add a leading space character,
but I cannot see where this behaviour is specified.
