Three minor issues with P5 (based on the Guidelines at
1. The definitions of ptr and ref still mention 'location in the current
document'. I am under the impression that we're going to use ptr and ref
to point to external locations too. Is that correct?
2. The definition of data.language
(http://www.tei-c.org/P5/Guidelines/ref-data.language.html) refers to RFC
1766, while the definition of xml:lang
(http://www.tei-c.org/P5/Guidelines/ref-att.global.html) mentions RFC
3. the language element for describing languages in the document does not
seem to be mandatory (http://www.tei-c.org/P5/Guidelines/HD.html#HD41: 'A
<language> element may be supplied for each different language used in a
document'); which seems sensible, as the values of xml:lang will usually
be unambiguously clear. However, the definition of the mainLang and
ontherLangs attributes of the textLang element state they must refer to 'a
code identifying a <language> element in the header'. Is that intentional
or just an oversight?
