Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-3836) ODF 1.1 Section 8.2.4 Misleading <table:table-rows> Description

ODF 1.1 Section 8.2.4 Misleading <table:table-rows> Description

                 Key: OFFICE-3836
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3836
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.1
         Environment: This applies to the ODF 1.1 Specification including with ODF 1.1 Errata 01 Applied.   It should be targeted to an ODF 1.1 Errata 02 Fix Version
            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
            Priority: Minor

In ODF 1.1 Section 8.2.4 there is the following paragraph about <table:table-rows> just before the schema fragment:

 "The <table:table-header-rows> and <table:table-rows> element are very similar to [HTML4]'s <THEAD> and <TBODY> elements."

There is in fact no such similarity.  header rows do not work in the same manner as in [HTML4].  In particular, there is no significance to the inclusion of <table:table-row> elements in a  <table:table-rows> element.  <table:table-row> elements can be introduced without inclusion in either <table:table-header-rows> or <table:table-rows>.  

The use of row groups also breaks the similarity with [HTML4].  In [HTML4]  <THEAD>, <TBODY> (and <TFOOT>) are also for providing distinctive styling over the groupings.  The ODF 1.1 <table:table-rows> element has no attributes.

The statement in 8.1.2 that <table:table-row> is similar to [XSL] <fo:table-row> makes the relationship to [HTML4] even less plausible (and vice versa).
