DTV11 — DTV Typo: definition of "Gregorian date"

  • Key: DTV11-80
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19063

  • Summary:

    In clause 11.7, in the Definition of 'Gregorian date', the reference to "Gregorian year month date coordinate" should be spelled "Gregorian year month day coordinate". The reference to "year weekday coordinate" should be spelled "year week day coordinate". Also, the concept 'year week day coordinate' is defined in the Week Calendar Vocabulary, which (according to figure 7.3) is not included by the Gregorian Calendar Vocabulary – and cannot be included without creating a circular inclusion problem.

  • Disposition: Resolved — DTV 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    The erroneous term “Gregorian year month date coordinate” occurs in the entry for Gregorian year month day coordinate as well as in the entry for Gregorian day.
    The reference to year week day coordinate in clause 11.7 is a consequence of the definition of Gregorian day. It is properly a “calendar date that refers to a Gregorian day”. The definitions of the other three concepts should refer to ‘Gregorian date’ as the more general type.
