Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3653) Public Comment:PRD02 <text:a> anchor text nonsense

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=23966#action_23966 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3653:

My sense of this is that the <text:a> is the anchor of a hyperlink according to the HTML definition that is being borrowed here.  This is true even for empty <text:a> elements.

The text of the paragraph-content of the <text:a> is what serves as the visual label of the hyperlink, except that is a UI phenomenon and we don't know how that will work in the implementation of a consumer.  

It might be better to say that the paragraph-content of the <text:a> determines the text with which is associated with the <text:a> XLink.  It is not just character data, since paragraph-content allows spans, drawing elements, etc.

Note that paragraph-content is the schema pattern for the <text:a> content and it is different than <text:p>.   It would have been good to be careful when we mean that pattern rather than some informal "paragraph" or "character data" mention.  (Also, I wonder if the foreign element flattening rule is worded to be applicable to this case of paragraph-content.)
