Hi Chimezie,

Happy new year! :)

The erratum that John refers to in his post, is based on the
'implementation experience' generated by formsPlayer (although the
extremely clear explanation in the erratum is all John's :). We
implemented this feature a long time ago, in order to demonstrate that
it was possible to resolve the ambiguities that the XForms 1.0 spec
was concerned about, so if you are not getting correct behaviour there
is possibly a bug.

It would be much appreciated if you could provide us with details of
what version you are using, and how to reproduce the problem. Issues
and feature requests can be viewed and created here:
