           Summary: [XSLT2.0] 14.3: reference target for "that item" in
                    context description for 'group-by' (editorial)
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 2.0

14.3 The xsl:for-each-group Element, after definition of 'grouping keys':

"The expression contained in the group-by or group-adjacent attribute is
evaluated with that item as the context item, with its position in population
order as the context position, and with the size of the population as the
context size."

As a non-native speaker, I'm having difficulties determining what the "that" in
"...that item..." references. I guess it will be the "...each item in the
population." of the preceding definition, but to me, it isn't absolutely clear.

Would the following re-formulation of the sentence be factually correct:

"The expression contained in the group-by or group-adjacent attribute is
evaluated for an item in the population with that item as the context item,
with its position in population order as the context position, and with the
size of the population as the context size."
