           Summary: [FO] 17.1 Casting to xs:NOTATION???
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators

The table in [17.1] states that casting
- from xs:string to xs:NOTATION
- from xs:NOTATION to xs:NOTATION
is possible (marked as M).

The text however (as well as [XQuery]3.12.3) states clearly that any cast to
xs:NOTATION is principally impossible - only subtypes of xs:NOTATION are
acceptable as target types. Does the "M" mean that cast to a subtype of
xs:NOTATION is possible? But that would be inconsistent arguing, compare the
exclusion of xs:anyAtomicType from the table.

I suggest to replace the "M" entries with "N" entries.

With kind regards -
Hans-Juergen Rennau
