Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3458) ODF 1.2 CD05-1 5.4.2<text:section-source> incompletely defined

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3458?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21833#action_21833 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3458:

It is important to explain how the text:section-name attribute works in the <text:section-source> element.  This is an alternative to the xlink:href but the text doesn't explain it.

It is also important to explain how their can be a section that is not from a source elsewhere, if that is possible.

The current schema *requires* that there is either a <text:section-source> element or the dde-source element.  That is how it is difficult to understand how linking is optional.  How does one create a non-linked section?

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Part 1 (Schema), Text
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Assignee: Michael Brauer
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06
> The schema shows all.
> The definition of 5.4.2 is as follows:
> """
> The <text:section-source> element indicates that an enclosed section is a linked section.
> """
> But all <text:section> elements are linked sections and/or the presence of the DDE element also shows that.
> The *difference* with <text:section-source> is that if it has a text:section-name attribute, that is the name of a section that is a source for the <text:section> that is the parent of the <text:section-source> element.
> Now, because the xlink:href can beused instead of the text:section-name to to a fragment having an xml:id that matches, this is not the only way to gain section text from the same XML document and from a different XML document in the package.   So there is no actual requirement that the link is to an "external" document or one that is not very close by.
> ABOUT xlink:show="embed" PROBLEMS
> My understanding of that default/only value is that this means the included content is to be rendered as if it were there in place of the <text:section-source> element -- that is how [XLink] defines the xlink:show="embed" case.
> What we really want, here, is that it is rendered in place of the <text:section> element.  Or, put differently, it is cached *in* the <text:section> element and it is the cache that is rendered.
> Then section 5.4.1 needs to be adjusted to be more clear about what the cases are, perhaps via OFFICE-3386.  This should be discussed along with OFFICE-3386.
