Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3482) "Text characterdata"

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3482?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=22419#action_22419 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3482:

I looked at 6.1.1 in the latest editors draft, and it appears that what we are attempting is to describe is what elements deliver the text of a paragraph, with white-space adjustment along with applicable formatting and styling imposed in some manner.  It seems to be an abstraction and it applies to the paragraph-content schema pattern.  It is more abstract than layout.  This is distinct from elements that have text content (i.e, have mixed content according to the schema) or that deliver a single string of text (with potentially-specified formatting and styling) that conforms to the lexical structure of a specified datatype pattern.

[PS: I think there is confusion between specific elements, such as <text:p> and paragraph-content as a pattern that occurs in other places, such as <text:h>, header-footer styles (I think), and more.  Instead of loosely speaking of paragraphs, we should name the element when we are being that specific, and we should name a generic schema pattern when a broader use of "paragraph" is meant.  The last part can be handled by defining nomenclature that matches the prose and the generic pattern.]

> Part 1, section 6.1.1 -- We say "Text character data contained...". Does this mean anything different than "character data", which is the term we use elsewhere? 
> In general, I'm not getting the distinction between "character data", "character content", "text content" and "text character data".
> The XML term is "character data" defined as: "All text that is not markup constitutes the character data of the document".
