Re: [Serialization] SCHEMA-O (qt-2004Feb0275-01)


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


[O] [Section 3: Serialization Parameters] 'use-character-maps' is a
misnomer. It is not a boolean parameter as it sounds. It is a list of
{character, string} pairs. Similar to cdata-section-elements, it should be

     Thanks to you and the XML Schema Working Group for this comment, 
which I am handling editorially.

     The name of this parameter derives from the attribute of the same 
name that is defined for xsl:output and xsl:result-document by XSLT 2.0. 
Admittedly, the name can be interpreted as implying that it has a boolean 
value, but it is intended to mean "these are the character maps to use." 
The name actually has an antecedent in XSLT 1.0:  use-attribute-sets.

     As I'd like to keep the names of the serialization parameters the 
same as the corresponding attributes defined by XSLT, I'm inclined not to 
make this editorial change.

     If this response is not acceptable to the XML Schema Working Group, I 
would invite you reopen the issue.
