            Bug ID: 29920
           Summary: [XSLT30] (editorial) What does "target attribute"
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: editorial
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSLT 3.0

  Target Milestone: ---

The meaning of the term "target attribute" can be inferred from its context,
however, it is not immediately clear. I propose to create a definition for it.

Its first usage is in the following sentence: "The shadow attribute has a name
that is the same as the name of the target attribute...".

The term is not explained there. I propose something like:

A *target attribute* is a no-namespace attribute on an element in the XSLT
namespace with the same name as its shadow attribute after its leading
underscore is removed from the name.

(I'm sure someone else can do better)
