I believe to have found two errors in the XPointer Specification 1.0. Since
there is no Errata page yet, these might be of interest:


Error in 5.4.2:

"The default value is 1, which makes the range start immediately before the
first character of the matched string."

	should read:

"... immediately after ..."

according to 5.3.1 ("...a non-zero index n indicates an point immediately
after the nth character of the string-value.")

And thus, the default value should be 0.


Error in 5.4.3:

point start-point(point)
point end-point(point)

	should read:

location-set start-point(location-set)
location-set end-point(location-set)

According to the description ("For each location x in the argument
location-set, start-point adds a location...").


Your feedback on these is appreciated.

Best regards,
Axel Dahmen
