Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3451) Inappropriate use of"should"
[ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3451?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21715#action_21715 ] Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3451: ----------------------------------------- I need help/discussion with someone on this. I don't think "may" is the correct word. It appears to me that the attribute MAY be used in ANY style of the identified family (e.g., chart styles) without any problem. I think we need to say where the attribute will have any effect, if it is not on all acceptable references to the style element on which the attribute is specified. Or is that case prohibited? I could not determine that from my reading of section 16. My sense is that the inclusion of attributes in style elements of particular families is permissive, and that it is the reliance on those attributes in elements that refer to those style elements (directly or by inheritance) that is selective. Does someone know if that is the case or not, and where can I determine the correct understanding in the specification? > Inappropriate use of "should" > ----------------------------- > > Key: OFFICE-3451 > URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3451 > Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC > Issue Type: Bug > Components: Needs Discussion, Part 1 (Schema), Styles > Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05 > Reporter: Andreas Guelzow > Assignee: Patrick Durusau > Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06 > > > In may places in the draft we have statements as: > " This attribute should be used within ... styles that are applied to a ... element.
