Re: [Serial] Normalization and References (qt-2004Nov0037-01)

Hi Bjoern

In [1], you submitted the following comment on the October 29 Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization:

In Section 4 item 2 "Character expansion" it is not clear in which order 
these are to be processed, the prose states the list is "in priority 
order" but the list is unordered. If the list is meant to be in an order 
please use an ordered list in the markup. Specifically, please clarify 
whether URI escaping is affected by the normalization-form parameter and 
further please add a note in how far escape-uri-attributes is consistent 
with the latest IRI Internet Draft. I further note that the reference for 
the normalization forms is
which is quite outdated and the latest version does no longer cover this 

Thank you for submitting this comment.  The editors handled this comment 
and would like to point out the following:
1.  Character expansion is now an ordered list. 
2.  The editors felt it is clear on inspection that a character changed by 
URI escaping is not changed by a character affected by Unicode 
Normalization (triggered by the normalization-form parameter).  Therefore, 
no clarification is necessary.
3.  The editors felt that the reference to Section 5.4 of [XLink] provides 
sufficient information and any further details would be outside the scope 
of this specification.  Therefore, no clarification is necessary.
4.  The reference to the Character Model specification is now

I would appreciate if you could check the latest public draft of the 
specification and verify that this change is correctly applied, and that 
it resolves this issue to your satisfaction.
