Re: ORA-SE-304-Q: possible parameter for how to handle elements with no children


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

SECTION 3: Serialization parameters

Perhaps there should be a parameter to indicate whether to 
output elements with no children as start-tag plus end-tag or as
empty-element tags.

     Thank you for this comment.  The XSL and XML Query Working Groups 
discussed your comment, and decided that such a parameter was not 
necessary, as it would not affect the Infoset of the serialized result. In 
addition, it was noted that such a parameter might conflict with the 
requirements of the xhtml and html output methods. 

     As you were present when this decision was made, I will assume the 
response is acceptable to you.
