Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3647) Public Comment:PRD02 Pt 1 Conformance language non-sense

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3647?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=23930#action_23930 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3647:

In English grammar, the use of parentheses and the use of the comma tend to suggest that the clause is optional and the meaning is not changed if it is omitted.

That's why I removed the "," before "or".  The range of or is clear because each side of the "or" consist of clauses that begin with "if".

I agree that the sentence is lengthy.  

We could break it up this way, perhaps?:

"If a style:condition, table:condition, table:expression, table:formula or text:formula attribute value begins with a namespace prefix bound to namespace "urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:of:1.2" the syntax and semantics of the attribute value portions that are expressions determined by the prefix, shall conform to part 2 of this specification.  If a namespace prefix is omitted at the beginning of the attribute value, the attribute value portions that are expressions determined by a prefix shall conform as if there were a prefix bound to namespace "urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:of:1.2".
