Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-4018) 19.600 definition of list

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4018?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=72454#comment-72454 ] 

Regina Henschel commented on OFFICE-4018:

A problem with ; cannot happen. A list is a sequence of "string" entries and later down "string" is defined with "surrounding the sequence of string characters in quotation marks". So it is always clear, whether a ; is a separator or a string character.

>                 Key: OFFICE-4018
>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4018
>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.3
>            Reporter: Patrick Durusau
>            Priority: Major
> Francis asked if the fourth bullet item, list, is sufficiently defined:
> "cell-content-is-in-list(list), where list is one or more string entries, separated by Ã;Ã (U+003B, SEMICOLON), or an _expression_: true if the cell's content is in list.
> "For example, can an entry in the list contain a semicolon? There may be a case for adding list to the list of value conditions defined later in this section."
> We explicitly define an escape for the " mark (two such marks in succession) so my first blush opinion is there are no other defined escape characters for 19.600.
> In 2018 there's nothing esp. remarkable about 19.600 and its capabilities.
> Rather than write something better, should we consider importing the regex handling from XQuery? Deprecating this in ODF 1.4? Dropping it in some future version?
