Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3487) Section 19.598 --"string comprises one or more characters surrounded by quotation marks."

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3487?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=22420#action_22420 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3487:


It appears that single quotes are intended.

However, there is a major ambiguity.

In the first paragraph, it is said that the namespace prefix (default or otherwise) applies to the syntax and semantics of values, strings, and expressions.  

To then stipulate the syntax of *value* and *string* is peculiar.

I think the repair should be in the first paragraph, where the namespace governs only the syntax and semantics of the *expression* pattern.  This allows simple table:condition forms that avoid dependence on any separate formula specification altogether.

However it does mean that we have trouble when an *expression* under the namespace has exactly the same lexical appearance as what is defined here as a *value* or *string* pattern.  I would suggest that the *value* and *string* rules would have precedence and *expression* is to be considered only when the the occurence is not a well-formed *value* or *string*. 

Finally, I note that the statement about leading "=" is worded as if it is a restriction on Part 2.  I believe there is a separate proposal to strike that.
