------- Comment #7 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2008-06-04 14:33 -------
A wording proposal intended to fix the bugs identified here is at 

  (member-only link)

A schema document with pattern elements for the various regexes
in the spec, those in this bug report, and some alternatives constructed
by the editors is at 


An annotated version of the same schema document, with abstract syntax
trees in the annotation child of each pattern, is at 


And PNG images of the parse trees are in 


using a naming convention which should be clear.

Note that the wording proposal differs in two ways (so far) from the
sketches in the material just mentioned (as it is shown today; we may
update it to re-synch things):  (1) signs are written [+\-] not
[-+] so as to be compatible with implementations which implemented the
language of the XSD 1.0 PER and have not changed since (if there are any
such), and (2) the rules for time zones have been corrected both in the
EBNF and in the regexes, to allow time zones up to and including 14:00
but not further (so the largest time offset is 14:00, not 14:59); this
aligns the formal definitions with the prose and with the WG's intentions.
