Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1660) Editor Note: Section17.438 smil:attributeName

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1660?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12074#action_12074 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-1660:

Apologies but I'm still confused. 

SMIL, at 3.4.1 says: "The animation target is defined as a specific attribute of a particular element. The means of specifying the target attribute and the target element are detailed in this section."

OK, that works and it goes on to talk about namespace resolution, etc.

But, when I look at the elements where smil:attributeName can appear, none of them have attributes with the names that are specified in this list. 

SMIL goes onto to say (under target element, same section):

"If no explicit target is specified, the implicit target element is the parent element of the animation element in the document tree. It is expected that the common case will be that an animation element is declared as a child of the element to be animated. In this case, no explicit target need be specified."

OK, so that should be the parent element of "<anim:animate> 14.2.2, <anim:animateColor> 14.2.6, <anim:animateMotion> 14.2.5, <anim:animateTransform> 14.2.3 and <anim:set> 14.2.4."


Here is where I get lost. I can't find a "charFontName" attribute on any of the parent elements. As a matter of fact, it only appears in this value listing. (That is just an example, I haven't checked all of the values but I suspect most if not all don't appear.)

What am I missing?

> Section 17.438 smil:attributeName
> Ed. Note Ok, but we don't have any attributes with these names. Nor do we provide a mapping to the attributes that we do have. We don't have to name the element where the attribute occurs (it can be on an unspecified child element) but it seems like we should name the attributes. In which case we need to re-do the definitions as well.
> Ed. Note: Michael: There is no smil:attributeName attribute fort <office:presentation>. The values described here apply to all elements instead.
> Patrick: After reading this comment again, I looked at SMIL 2.0, which says: "The target attribute to be animated is specified with attributeName. The value of this attribute is a string that specifies the name of the target attribute, as defined in the host language."
> After reading what we say, I think (possibly incorrectly) that we have skipped the step of having a target attribute and instead are using smil:attributeName values as values associated with defined behaviors. Is that correct? 
> In other words, to follow SMIL 2.0, we would have to name an attribute and the value of that attribute would determine the behavior. Seems like we skipped a step. Yes?
> Michael Brauer says: "The smil:AttributeName is not allowed for <office:presentation> (section 18.651.6) My understanding is that the values listed there may be used with all occurrences of the attribute, meaning that we could describe the attribute once."
