Or is it something specific to the > table:formula attribute in Part 1? It seems to me that the formulation in part assumes that formulas start with '=': For example in 19.644: The attribute value should begin with a namespace prefix followed by ":" (COLON, U+003A), followed by the text of the formula. And in 19.470: "formula is a formula (see 19.644) without the equals ´=¡ (EQUALS SIGN, U+003D) at the beginning." IN the first example the '=' must be part of the formula otherwise it would not appear. In the second case we are omitting a part of the formula. This would not be necessary to say if we did not inclde the '=' as part of the formula. Andreas -- Andreas J. Guelzow <aguelzow@pyrshep.ca>
