Subject: Informal summary of errors in ODF 1.3 Committee Specification


For our meeting today I have captured from emails to the discussion list

Informal summary of errors in odf-1.3-committee-specification - patrick@durusau.net 27-Jan-2020

Part 2 (Regina Henschel reporting, https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office/email/archives/202001/msg00009.html)

In part 2, section 4.16.9: The text lists the value PGP, but that is not 
contained in the generated text in the gray box.

In part 2, section The text has version "1.2", but the 
generated text in the gray box has "1.3"

Response by Francis Cave, https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office/email/archives/202001/msg00010.html


Part 3 (Alfred Hellstern https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office/email/archives/202001/msg00006.html)

Per https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3868, references to RFC4288 are to be replaced with references to RFC6838.

    Appendix C still contains a reference to RFC4288
    Also, [MIMETYPES] is found as a reference in both the normative and non-normative sections

Relating to https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3695:

    The number:fraction element did exist in 1.2, but is listed in Appendix G under New Elements (in some earlier drafts it was listed in both sections)

meta:creator-initials https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3776

    is listed in Appendix G on the same line as dr3d:scene, should have a line break in front of it.
    Also, this is listed under Changed Elements, but didnât exist in 1.2, so shouldnât it be listed under New Elements?

Per https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3857, Weâre introducing style:scale-to-X and style:scale-to-Y. The JIRA issue mentions âUpdate: <style:page-layout-properties>, style:scale-to and style:scale-to-page sections should be updated, too, with the new style:scale-to-X and style:scale-to-Y attributes.â

This results in these changes

    Adds this attribute to the attribute list of <style:page-layout-properties> 17.2

    in 20.352 (ODF 1.2 = 20.344) < style:scale-to>, changes:

If this attribute and style:scale-to-pages are absent, a document is not scaled.


If style:scale-to, style:scale-to-pages 20.353, style:scale-to-X 20.354 and

style:scale-to-Y 20.355 attributes are absent, a document is not scaled

    In 20.353 (ODF 1.2 = 20.345) <style:scale-to-page>, changes:

If this attribute and style:scale-to are absent, a document is not scaled


If style:scale-to-pages, style:scale-to 20.352, style:scale-to-X 20.354 and

style:scale-to-Y 20.355 attributes are absent, a document is not scaled.


Should these changes to 20.352 and 20.353 not separately be tracked by an entry in Appendix G: Changes from 1.2? Just like the changes for 3923 are listed twice?

office:process-content (deleted) https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4034 Is listed twice in the appendix, once under Changed Attributes and once under âRemoved elements, attributes and valuesâ

17.15 <style:table-properties>

The <style:table-properties> element specifies formatting properties for tables.

The <style:table-properties> element is usable within the following elements: <style:default-style> 16.4 and <style:style> 16.2.

The <style:table-properties> element has the following attributes: fo:background-color 20.182, fo:break-after 20.184, fo:break-before 20.185, fo:keep-with-next 20.201, fo:margin 20.205, fo:margin-bottom 20.206, fo:margin-left 20.207, fo:margin-right 20.208, fo:margin-top 20.209, style:may-break-between-rows 20.319, style:page-number 20.328, style:rel-width 20.340, style:shadow 20.359, style:width 20.399, style:writing-mode 20.404, table:align 20.414, table:border-model 20.415, table:display 20.416 and table:tab-color Error: Reference source not found.

The <style:table-properties> element has the following child element: <style:background-image> 17.3.

Bookmark reference not being resolved. 

Appendix G has this:

style:condition 19.472 of <style-map> 16.3 Office-3282

3282 should be 3882 (the hyperlink does go to the correct JIRA issue 3882)

Same for table:condition

table:condition 19.600 Office-3882

table:condition 19.600 of <table:content-evaluation> 9.4.5 Office-3282

    3282 should be 3882 (the hyperlink does go to the correct JIRA issue 3882)
    table:content-evaluation should be table:content-validation
    Is the second line actually needed since they both point to 19.600?

style:page-number 20.328 from https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3923

lists this twice:

The style:page-number attribute is usable with the following elements: <style:paragraph-properties> 17.6 and <style:table-properties> 17.15.

The style:page-number attribute is usable with the following elements: <style:paragraph-properties> 17.6 and <style:table-properties> 17.15.

https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3945 For text:anchor-type, the first proposed change doesnât seem to have been implemented

Change first paragraph to:

The text:anchor-type attribute specifies how a drawing shape is bound to a text document. The anchor position is the point at which a drawing shape is bound to a text document.

For https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3931

presentation:display-date-number 20.236 Office-3931 should be presentation:display-page-number 20.236 Office-3931

chart:regression-type 20.50 Office-3958, Office-3959 for https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3958 and https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3959

this attribute already existed in 1.2, but is listed in the New Attributes section, should be in the Changed Attributes section.

number:exponent-interval 19.347 Office-1828 per https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-1828 is a new attribute, but is listed under the Changed Attributes.


Francis Cave responds (https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office/email/archives/202001/msg00014.html) with additional corrections:

OFFICE-3868: I agree with both your points. In Appendix C the reference to RFC 4288 needs updating to refer to RFC 6838, and the [MIMETYPES] entry in 1.4 should be removed. Also, I notice in passing that the column widths of the tables in Appendix C need to be adjusted so that the filename extensions in the second column donât break over two lines.

OFFICE-3695: I agree. The entry should be moved to the next list (elements that have changed).

OFFICE-3776: I agree. The formatting of the list of changed elements needs tidying up: blank lines need to be removed from the list and a meta:creator-initials should be on its own line.

OFFICE-3776: I agree. The changes to <style:update-page-layout-properties> (17.2) should be listed in Appendix G under elements that have changed. The changes to attributes style:scale-to (20.352) and style:scale-to-pages (20.353) should be listed in Appendix G under attributes that have changed.

I notice in passing the following minor formatting issues:

    In 17.1 there is a blank bulleted list item, which should be deleted.
    In 20.352 there is a double space after âIfâ at the beginning of the second paragraph.

Double spaces should be reduced to one space in the following places where they occur mid-sentence (Iâve ignored double spaces between sentences and some other less odious occurrences):

    Table 3, row 2, column 2, between âfromâ and âelementsâ
    2.2.1, D.1, between âconformâ and âtoâ. Also, for consistency, remove blank line above âC)â on same page.
    2.2.1, D.3, between âvalueâ and âhasâ
    5.3.6, second paragraph, between â5.3.1â and âelementâ.
    5.4.1, first paragraph, between âorâ and âtextâ
    16.2, ninth paragraph, between âparentâ and âstylesâ.
    19.15.1, list item âchart:areaâ, third paragraph, between âtheâ and âorderâ.
    19.15.1, list item âchart:stockâ, second paragraph, between â<chart:stock-gain-marker> and â11.20â.
    19.107, list item âmatrixâ, between âvaluesâ and â(<j>â.
    19.142, between âattributesâ and âofâ
    19.211, second paragraph, between âsecondaryâ and âcircleâ.
    19.218.2, list item âlinearâ, between âlinear:â and âdefinesâ.
    19.373, between â<text:expression>,â and â<text:user-field-decl>â.
    Table 15, heading, between âTableâ and â15â.
    19.472, list following fourth paragraph, item ânumberValueâ, between â[xmlschema-2]â and âdecimalâ.
    19.472, final paragraph, between âbyâ and âTable 16â.
    19.600, second Note, between â9.4.5â and âelementâ.
    19.856, between âattributeâ and â19.857â. There is a full-stop missing after â19.857â.
    20.47, first paragraph, between âtheâ and âchart:regression-moving-typeâ.
    20.47, second paragraph, second sentence, between âLetâ and formula.
    20.122, list item âtrueâ, between âdraw:fill-colorâ and â20.119â.
    20.230, second paragraph, between âoverflowâ and âtextâ.
    20.349, list item âdistribute-spaceâ, between âaâ (which should be âanâ) and âamountâ.
    20.360, first paragraph, between âcontentâ and âalreadyâ.
    20.405, list item âfalseâ, between âparagraphâ and âwheneverâ.
    20.405, list item âtrueâ, between âparagraphâ and âwheneverâ.
    20.418, first paragraph, between âshapeâ and âisâ.


Other nits:

    General: The style âText Bodyâ used to have 1.4 mm above and below the paragraph, but has none in the CS. I think that the style properties need to be checked.
    4.3.1, third paragraph, remove open double quote at end (this was in ODF 1.2., change âa IRIâ to âan IRIâ.
    7.4.1, list item âUser variablesâ, first paragraph, remove space at start of paragraph.
    Table 10, first row, column 4, change âa ellipseâ to âan ellipseâ.
    Table 10, several rows, column 4, change âa impliedâ to âan impliedâ.
