Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3412) NEEDS-DISCUSSION13.5.24 <form:value-range> does not allow a "continuous" number range

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3412?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21539#action_21539 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3412:

With regard to datatypes, string is only the parent of the lexical markups, because that is all that <text /> element children and attribute values are.  String is not the parent of the nominal values, however, and that is where we are seeing a bit of a problem.  Also, having string as a parent doesn't mean that any string is usable for one of the "children."   So it has to be stated in the semantics and the specification when the value of some attribute in an individual usage must be limited to the lexical values that are appropriate to the nominals values of some related entity that is being set or chosen.

I don't think there is a schema fix here, because I don't think we have anything that can sort this out at the schema level.  

I also don't see what the form:page-step-size and form:step-size have to do with this unless the form:min-value and form:max-value apply to those.  I was hoping I didn't have to look that closely [;<).

>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06
> Currently 13.5.24 states:
> "The <form:value-range> element defines a control which allows the user to select a value from a continuous number range."
> Since <form:value-range> has a form:step-size attribute with a default value of 1 and values that are positiveInteger this is anything but a "continuous" number range. 
> In fact there is no real justification why the  form:step-size and  form:page-step-size attributes could not allow arbitrary positive numbers. Note that form:min-size and form:max-size allow arbitrary doubles.
