Subject: Re: [Fwd: Re: [office] Review of ODF 1.2 specification draft 1.2- chapters 6 and 7]


A quick question on the "sender" fields:

OK, I can't change the text:sender-* element names (not in this release) 
but I can change the prose to be more appropriate.

My suggestion is to use the phrase "a subsequent author" in place of 
sender in the prose.

Under the general introduction I will explain the divergence from the 
text:sender-* language.

Question: It is fair to say that an application could choose to support 
more than one subsequent author? That is it could maintain multiple sets 
of what we now call text:sender-* elements?

The current schema doesn't seem to prohibit that usage but I wanted to 
ask to be sure.

Hope you are looking forward to a great week!
