           Summary: extra space in the result of functx-fn-namespace-uri-
           Product: XML Query Test Suite
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XML Query Test Suite
        AssignedTo: frans.englich@telia.com
        ReportedBy: andrew.eisenberg@us.ibm.com

The expected result of this test case is " http://datypic.com/pre
http://datypic.com/unpre http://datypic.com/pre".

The leading space in this result would be justified if
namespace-uri-for-prefix('', $in-xml) returned a zero-length string ($in-xml
has no default namespace).

Section 11.2.5, fn:namespace-uri-for-prefix, in F&O, says:

"If $prefix is the zero-length string or the empty sequence, it returns the
namespace URI of the default (unnamed) namespace. Otherwise, it returns the
empty sequence."

I think that one could interpret this as requiring that an empty-sequence be
returned, rather than a zero-length string. This interpretation would remove
the leading space from the expected result.

Am I missing something? Should this be brought to the WGs?
