Subject: RE: [office-comment] Error in FLOOR function specification

It is not undefined in the sense of mathematics, where every pair of
arguments is defined except those where p = 0.  It is undefined in
the sense of the OF standard, since different conforming implementations
do different things with it.  (It *is* defined in the sense of
the Common Lisp standard.)

Fair enough.  But you claimed that the text was not in fact in error.

Be yourself.  Especially do not feign a working knowledge of RDF where
no such knowledge exists.  Neither be cynical about RELAX NG; for in
the face of all aridity and disenchantment in the world of markup,
James Clark is as perennial as the grass.  --DeXiderata, Sean McGrath
