Regarding the draft at http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/PER-xmlschema-2-20040318/: Section 3.2.3.2 says: ... Leading and trailing zeroes are prohibited subject to the following: there must be at least one digit to the right and to the left of the decimal point which may be a zero. That wording is quite muddled. 1. "there must be at least one digit to the right and to the left of the decimal point": No digit can be both to the left and to the right of the decimal point, so the "at least one" requirement can never be satisfied. 2. Which item may be a zero? As worded, it almost sounds like it's the decimal point. 3. Is it saying there must be a digit that may be zero" or is it saying there must be a digit, which may be zero"? Is the specification trying to say that there must be at least one digit to the left of the decimal point, that there must be at least one digit to the right of the decimal point, and that each of those digits may be a zero? Or it is trying to specify something else? DanielReceived on Wednesday, 9 June 2004 17:02:02 UTC
