Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (OFFICE-3644) Public Comment: PRD02Pt 2, escaping quotation marks

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3644?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Dennis Hamilton updated OFFICE-3644:

    Proposal: In 5.4, delete the sentence starting with "When a formula is stored in"  (was: In 5.4, delete the sentences starting with "delete the sentences starting with "When a formula is stored in")

I agree that the sentence is inappropriate, although the public comment misunderstands that this is only about string literals written with OpenFormula expressions and is not a general observation about escaping needs in attribute values.

A Note might be appropriate, but it would probably be better to have the note at a higher level in the discussion of OpenFormula syntax and lexical forms.

If the note were elsewhere, it might be a paragraph that says something like:

"Note: This syntax applies to the OpenFormula expression as a string value.  When expressed in an XML element or XML attribute value, certain characters of the intended string may have to be escaped (e.g., via character entity) in order to be included in the desired OpenFormula expression and not be mistaken for characters having significance in the XML syntax ."
