Subject: Re: [office] A small step on "Empty Cell"
please see below
allow me to rephrase your answer before I ask questions to make sure I understand:
- You say theÂuser semantic perspective an "empty cell" should be equal to the function ISBLANK on the cell is returning TRUE.
No, I am not saying that. The XML has to be able to uniquely reflect the fact that the cell is empty, but it does not matter whether the table:table-cell element is empty or not.
- You say in case of theÂcell state being an empty cell (ISBLANK=True), the ODF XML element of a table should have no child element descendants
If this is the case:
- Do you desire to 'move' shapes and annotations out of the table cell, or shall for cells with shapes or annotation the type 'void' be used?ÂÂ
- If the cell is empty (ISBLANK=True) should the XML be an empty XML element <table:table-cell/>?
DoesÂit allowÂXML attributes, such as styles (e.g. background colour)?Â
During one of our last TC calls, you mentioned "multi-pass" of Gnumeric when loading ODS.
As far I understood, you desired images & annotations to be moved outside the XML of a cell.
Could you explain thisÂto me inÂmoreÂdetail?
I do not suggest to move images & annotations outside the XML of a cell. It seems that you and other members of the TC are thinking of the xml stream as the document. I consider the document and the xml stream to be distinct (but of course related) objects. The xml stream describes the object. When we read the xml stream, we create a document (which once it is created is independent from teh XML). When we write the document we create a new xml stream.
