Subject: Table Protected Proposal - Edge Case Question

Michael, I notice that there is an edge case left in the proposal
(broadening one that also existed in earlier versions of the specification).


1. In the previous description of the Table Cell Table Protection attribute
(<table:table-cell> table:protect) there was an assertion that this
attribute, whose default value is "false", is unrelated to the <table:table>
table:protection attribute and the impact of a style:cell-protect attribute.

2. In the latest draft and the proposal for <table:table-cell> table:protect
and table:protection attributes, that statement is missing and there is no
explanation in its place.


1. Is <table:table-cell> table:protected independent of the occurrence and
setting of <table:table> table:protected?  

2. If not, how are they related?

3. If they are independent, when <table:table table:protected="true">, how
does style:protected-cell="true" impact the ability to alter
<table:table-cell table:protected>?  What is the impact on the ability to
alter the cell?

I think it would be good to clear this up.  My expectation is that
<table:table-cell table:protected> is the poor-man's locking capability, and
that it is trumped (has no effect) when <table:table table:protected="true">
and style:cell-protected="true" for the same Table Cell.  Other cases also
seem plausible.
