# New VOTable 1.4 draft

Tom,

a few more niggles for you.

- Example VOTable in Section 3.1:
remove the namespace declaration

xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

since it's not doing anything.

- Example VOTable in Section 3.5:
remove the two namespace declarations

xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:stc="http://www.ivoa.net/xml/STC/v1.30"

since they're not doing anything

(I mentioned the in my comments on the previous draft at
http://mail.ivoa.net/pipermail/apps/2019-February/001338.html,
but I think they got overlooked).

- Front matter:
The document date has not been updated, so the current
(20190218) WD still says it's 2019-01-31 on the title page
(this foxed me for a while).

- Line 911 in the LaTeX source of votable.tex is overlong - would be
nice to break it to similar length to the other lines in the document.

- Bibliography entry [7]:
in "\noindent [7] {it XML Schema Versioning Policies}":
"it" should read "\it".

- Bibliography: entry [8]:
the URL "http://www.ivoa.net/documents/DALI/20170517/REC-DALI-1.1.pdf"
should be replaced by a reference to the landing page rather than the
PDF, as for the other IVOA documents referenced.
"http://www.ivoa.net/documents/DALI/" would do, or a versioned
landing page if you prefer.
