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=21719#action_21719 ] Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3451: ----------------------------------------- Rob, yes I believe that is the case. It appears that saying "may" with regard to already permissible style attributes has no content, since if it is an optional attribute, "may" seems built in, unless it is somehow impermissible if that style is reference by an element for which the particular attribute is inapplicable. But I don't think there is any such prohibition. And I don't think the prohibition would be on the style but on the referencing of it in that case. That is what has me doubt that there are any such prohibitions. I think there is an effort at style resolution, but it won't tell us whether an attribute is unacceptable if it isn't a formatting feature that matters for the particular element being formatted. That's where I get lost. > 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.
