Re: ORA-SE-312-B: Missing exception for additional whitespace added by indent parameter


     In [1], you submitted the following comment on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization.

     Thank you for your comment.

     The XSL and XQuery working groups discussed your comment, and agreed 
with your analysis.  The following item will be added to the bulleted list 
in section 4 to address this comment:

o Additional text nodes consisting of whitespace characters may be present 
in the new tree and some text nodes in the new tree may contain additional 
whitespace characters that were not present in the original tree if the 
indent parameter has the value yes, as described in 4.3 XML Output Method: 
the indent Parameter.

     As you were present when this decision was made, I will take it that 
the decision is acceptable to you.
