On Apr. 13 you asked about the definition of equal points in the
XPointer draft. Very sorry for the tardiness of this reply.

The XML Linking WG has just released a new version of the XPointer
specification. It factors the original XPointer document into
separate documents for:
  schemes framework
  xmlns scheme
  basic element addressing scheme
  full xpointer scheme

All the drafts are last-call WDs, except for the xpointer()
scheme. It is a working draft, and the issue of equality of
points is the main technical issue we will be addressing before
advancing it to last call.

I can't guarantee what solution we will come up with, but the
current leading candidate is the 'recursive definition' given in
Michael Dyck's comments on the XPointer spec:

If you have the time and inclination, we would be interested
in your opinion of that approach.

Thanks for your careful examination of the CR draft, I hope
you will be able to review the new documents as carefully.

Best regards,
Ron Daniel Jr.
acting chair, XML Linking WG
