According to the documentation, one can set a custom URI resolver for unparsed-text() and friends by setting configuration/global/@unparsedTextURIResolver. However, I found, that this is not the right attribute name. It is configuration/global/@unparsedTextUriResolver, i.e. URI in camel case.

Setting @unparsedTextURIResolver has no effect, while setting @unparsedTextUriResolver activates my custom URI resolver.

I think this is an issue of the documentation. Other attributes for setting URI resolvers use camel case and they work as documented. So fixing the docs would be consistant.

Tested on Saxon-HE 10.9 (Java). Read in docs for 10 and 12.

Thanks for pointing it out.

The schema for the configuration file has the name as unparsedTextURIResolver, but the code that reads the configuration file is looking for `unparsedTextUriResolver``

I think I'm going to keep the schema and the documentation using the name unparsedTextURIResolver so that it's aligned with the property name in FeatureKeys, but change the configuration file reader to accept both the correct name (...URI...) and the one that's currently accepted.

  • Category set to Configuration
  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Assignee set to Michael Kay
  • Priority changed from Low to Normal

Fixed as suggested for 11.x, 12.x, and 13.x. The schema and documentation retain the "URI" spelling; the configuration file reader will accept either.
