XOXO Issues


Add new issues to the *bottom* of this list.

  • open issue! 2005-06-21 raised by Hixie
    1. Issue H-1: This specification is lacking a user agent conformance section. There's basically nothing that says how XOXO documents must be parsed, how to handle errors, and so forth. Is it defined in terms of the DOM? Is it defined in terms of a serialisation? How do you handle unexpected content or missing content?

    1. I don't understand what benefits xoxo provides. Color me dense, but I can't for the life of me figure out what XOXO offers. I read about syntax on this wiki, but not about use cases or benefits. Please help me understand! Thanks in advance. MikeSchinkel 21:30, 11 Oct 2006 (PDT)
  • open issue! 2007-01-13 raised by Premasagar
    1. I also do not quite understand the dividing line between a bog-standard HTML list and a xoxo list. What is the defining difference? Premasagar
  • open issue! 2007-08-07 raised by User:Tantek and User:Kevin_Marks (originally raised sometime in 2005 or 2006, but captured 2007-08-07).
    • [11:31am] KevinMarks: Tantek and I had a big unresolved debate about this a long time ago, involving more 'special' elements to preserve ordered/unordered status
    • [11:31am] KevinMarks: for the ul vs ol distinction
    • [11:31am] tantek: I believe it was the user/web-designer/publisher perspective vs. the scripting-language data-structure perspective.
    • e.g. web designer / HTML / posh perspective, vs. JSON perspective.
open issue! XOXO#More Simple Examples sais:

The CSS selector for "an li node that contains an ol node with a 'compact' attribute set" would be 'li ol[compact="compact"]'.

This CSS selector doesn't select a destination node but "an ol node with a 'compact' attribute set that is contained in an li node". I think any CSS2 selector cannot select a proper node... --KitaitiMakoto 20:32, 30 December 2008 (UTC)


Consider using this format (copy and paste this to the end of the list to add your issues; replace ~~~ with an external link if preferred) to report issues or feedback, so that issues can show up in hAtom subscriptions of this issues page. If open issues lack this markup, please add it.

Please post one issue per entry, to make them easier to manage. Avoid combining multiple issues into single reports, as this can confuse or muddle feedback, and puts a burden of separating the discrete issues onto someone else who 1. may not have the time, and 2. may not understand the issue in the same way as the original reporter.
