Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3038) 19.470 / 19.598 -Style:Condition & Table:Condtion - quotation marks for strings not clear

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21590#action_21590 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3038:

Um, the use of language about double quotation marks versus double-quote marks is not clear here.

I am assuming we are using double-quote (QUOTATION MARK, U+0022)  character to delimit the beginning and end of string literals, the same as in OpenFormula.  (I must correct my misunderstanding of that in my comment on a related issue.)     The double-quote must be doubled in order to express a single double-quote character within the string.  

Any escapiing because the attribute AttValue itself is surround with double-quote or single-quote characters is a separate matter.

I suggest the first part of the proposal be changed to:

In style:condition and table:condition replace 
string comprises one or more characters surrounded by quotation marks. 
string is expressed by one or more characters surrounded by double-quote (QUOTATION MARK, U+0022) characters.  The characters between the surrounding double-quote characters constitute the text of the string.  Inclusion of a double-quote character in the text of the string is expressed by occurrence of two consecutive double-quote characters.
