------- Comment #5 from jim.melton@acm.org  2006-04-27 14:54 -------
My memory of the discussions, and my interpretation of the wording in reply #3
below (which I wrote), is that the white space is required only to separate a
pragma name from pragma contents, not that a pragma name is always to be
followed by white space.  Thus, I believe that (# Pname#) satisfies the
intended syntax for pragmas as discussed and recorded in response #3. 

Of course, I do not believe that any harm is done when a space is used, based
on my interpretation that whitespace immediately following a pragma name is not
part of a pragma contents.  Thus the pragma (# Pname#) and the pragma (# Pname
#) are, IMHO, identical in semantics. 

As a consequence, I do not believe that this is actually an XQueryX bug, nor
will a change to XQueryX have any effect on this issue.  I am therefore
transferring ownership of this bug to our grammar expert and editor.
