|  In the WD-xproc-20061117, we read in ยง2.1 the definition of a
| subpipeline:
|
|    [Definition: The components (and the connections between
|    them) within a container form a subpipeline.] Each construct
|    determines how and which, if any, of its subpiplines is
|    evaluated.
|
|  Souldn't that read instead "... within a container form one or
| more subpipelines" ?  The sentence just after the definition tell
| about the several subpipelines of a container.  A choose
| container can for example have multiple subpipelines.

Perhaps. I think it's a question of perspective and I'm not sure we've
really expressed it very clearly yet. My current thinking is that, for
example, the p:choose step contains one-or-more p:when containers and
zero-or-one p:otherwise containers. Each of those containers has
within it a subpipeline. I'm not convinced that the p:when's and
p:otherwise's themselves are best explained as being a subpipline of
the p:choose.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
