Data Types Issue 45: comp name


regarding SXPR

surely an R2 issue, but shouldn't the name "Sub-Expression" be harmonized with "comp"? This is the only case of an element/attribute in the ITS having no relation to the name of a property.

? backward compatible.


This was from Paul Biron back when Paul and Grahame did the final editorial pass on the XML ITS datatypes prior to ANSI approval

Grahame's answer is no.

comp is ok; what, would you want sub-expression?

can clean up the XML so that it says

"sub-expression is represented as comp"

rather than

"comp is represented as comp"
