Subject: Placement of issue resolution - tabs and spreadsheets


I discovered/uncovered our resolution of:


on 2016-04-25, which reads:

Patrick: Note that tab alignment is expected (should) for
interoperability (display) purposes
Patrick: set to ODF 1.3 but resolution is a note on expected support for
tab alignment in spreadsheets
Darrin House: that looks good
Patrick: consent on 2127


I've updated JIRA to show the issue resolved but now have a question about where to best put the text?

Part 4, OpenFormula has no mention of tabs at all.

Part 3 has:

6.1.4 <text:tab> Defines the <text:tab> element - Good location for the proposed note?


17.8 <style:tab-stop> Defines a tab stop.

I'm leaning towards 17.8 <style:tab-stop> for a note that reads:

"Note: Spreadsheets should use tab elements 6.1.4 to align data in columns."

Other locations?

I'm thinking that as presentation in spreadsheet is a matter of style, that implementers will be more likely to catch the note under styles.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


PS: After agreement by the TC, this change will appear in a future working draft.
