Subject: 2.4.6 Cursor Position Setting


Greetings,

2.4.6 Cursor Position Setting, first paragraph reads:

A common view setting for editing applications is the position where the 
text cursor was while saving the document. For WYSIWYG application, this 
usually will be a position within a paragraph only. For application that 
provide an XML based view of the document, the cursor position could be 
also between arbitrary elements, or even within tags.

Suggest:

WYSIWYG application -> WYSIWYG applications

For application -> For applications

The second paragraph reads:

To represent a text cursor position within Open Office documents, a 
processing instruction with PITarget openoffice (see 2.6 of [XML1.0]) 
should be used. The character content of the processing instruction must 
follow the XML start tag content, that is, it must have a name and an 
arbitrary number of attributes. The name of the cursor position 
processing instruction is cursor-position. It may have arbitrary 
application specific attributes, for instance to connect the cursor 
position with a certain view of the document, where the views themselves 
are specified as application specific settings.

Comment:

Since this is the only place where processing instructions are 
specified, shouldn't we simply say that the required name is 
cursor-position, as opposed to saying it must have a name and then 
saying it is cursor-position?

The reason I mention this is that 'name' is used in the productions of 
XML 1.0 to define the PITarget. Granted 'name' in another sense but 
possibly confusing in a quick read.

Suggest:

To represent a text cursor position within Open Office documents, a 
processing instruction with PITarget openoffice (see 2.6 of [XML1.0]) 
should be used. The name of the cursor position processing instruction, 
cursor-position, must follow the PITarget openoffice. The processing 
instruction may have arbitrary application specific attributes, for 
instance to connect the cursor position with a certain view of the 
document, where the views themselves are specified as application 
specific settings.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
