In both cases the application will use whatever default value it normally uses for this attribute -- which is IMHO the only sensible thing to require from an implementation [more precisely not requiring anything when it comes to the topic of unhandled attribute values. if they're unhandled, then by definition we can't expect them to be handled ;)]. b) is a common utopia solution which never solved any problem nor can be implemented fully. -- David Faure, firstname.lastname@example.org, sponsored by Trolltech to work on KDE, Konqueror (http://www.konqueror.org), and KOffice (http://www.koffice.org).
