Hi John,

I was making another pass through the expression module and while re-reading your editorial notes, I wondered if the XML declaration is serialized. don't we need the same parameters as on the submission to specify the output parameters.

Kind regards,

Initial draft of xf:serialize() appears here: http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/XPath_Expressions_Module#The_serialize.28.29_Function

This was a Category:XForms20 feature: http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Parse_and_serialize_functions

It was suggested to make it compatible with XPath 3.0 serialize(),  The result is compatible, but not identical. It is intended to be parallel to the parse() function and parallel to XForms submission, including serialization to non-XML formats.  The differences are explained in an editor note, which will be fodder for discussion.
