OK, if this was wrong on ODF 1.0 and 1.1, what is the correct answer?

Sorry, you lost me there.

What you describe sounds like Michael, as the second author of the 
document, is listed for dc:creator.

Ah, so is "sender" just bad prose? What it means is a subsequent author 
of content in the file?

I was wondering how the application was going to realize it had been 

So, I should remove the sender language and simply say additional author?

See above.

Are you saying that the text is incorrect when it says:

"This element contains some brief text which is displayed with the 
placeholder. "

True, it is replaced with whatever content the user supplies but it does 
have content that is displayed to the user. Yes?

OK, but where is it being stored now?

Ah, you mean (for <text:file-name>):


Sure, you're right.

And for text:template-name:


OK, but I am not picking up where the values *area* and *title* are 
coming from? In other words, what element or attribute is being 
referenced there?

The |text:table-type| attribute specifies the reference made by a 
database table with the following values:


      sql : an SQL table


      query : an OpenDocument query


      command : the result of an SQL command


Hope you are having a great weekend!
