Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2203) Validation concerns[N 1309:6]

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2203?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19366#action_19366 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2203:

I'm not sure I understand the observation about MathML.  In ODF 1.0, there is no described MathML root element (although that is cleared up somewhat in ODF 1.2 for a package consisting of an OpenFormula Formula Document.

On the other hand, there is a general matter with regard to the specification of attribute values in an internal subset DTD.  That seems particularly difficult to handle unless the prefix with namespace binding to <math:math> and others are known, and the non-validating process or properly forgiving if all element types are not defined.  

I can see entity values being defined that could be used in attribute values to set options globally (as well as create named character entities).  

However, it is incorrect that the DTD does not have to be ready.  An internal subset DTD must be read and the definitions that don't require reading of an external DTD must be processed (with some adjustment for any standalone setting in the XML prolog).

There needs to be some sort of clear resolution of whether the second part is applicable or not.

> Description of issue
> It is stated that:
>     The version number is in the format revision.version. If the file has a version known to an XML processor, it may validate the document. Otherwise, it is optional to validate the document, but the document must be well formed. 
> However:
>     * No "XML Processor" has an understanding of such attributes. Perhaps what is meant here is "ODF processor"?
>     * There is a false opposition between the two given behaviours here since one is governed by the word "may" and the other is described as optional. So as stated, both behaviours are in fact optional; furthermore there is an implication that a document with an unrecognized version attribute may not be well-formed. This is confusing.
>     * DTD-governed MathML content within ODF documents may have different content depending on how the DTD is processed, since the DTD contains attribute defaulting; so the different behaviours given here may result in different documents. The behaviour in such circumstances should be clarified (even if to state it is application-dependent).
> Proposal
> Amend the text to resolve the above defects.
