The following message was just posted; it looks like an error in the part 2 spec (since the report indicates an inconsistency).

Subject: [office-comment] ODF Part 2 Open Formula - Whitespace between FunctionName and
 opening parentheses of parameter list

There appears to be a contradiction in the specification regarding white
space after a function name.

In Section 5.2:

The EBNF for Expression allows Whitespace between the FunctionName and
opening parentheses of the parameterList:

  Expression ::=
    FunctionName Whitespace* '(' ParameterList ')' |

In Section 5.14:
"Whitespace shall be ignored just before a function name, but whitespace
shall not separate a function name from its initial opening

I assume the EBNF for Expression needs to be corrected. Hope this helps.
