Hi Jeremy,

This message contains a response to comments on



It's very unclear what this means. What syntax has been violated?
The description in 4.8 talks about 'invalid or illegal' (what's the
between 'invalid' or 'illegal') strings. The exception appears on
many methods with no string arguments, and does not appear in

The usage of SYNTAX_ERR has been modified in the current draft. The  
definition for SYNTAX_ERR states that this exception is raised when  
the syntax for namespaceURI or propertyName do not conform to the  
syntax supported by the DPF platform. The SYNTAX_ERR can be raised by  
the methods hasDPFProperty(), getDPFPropertyList(), and  
searchDPFProperty() where the usage of syntax is valid.
