ODF New Proposal Template


Proposal owner: Michael Brauer

Proposal short name: Table Protected


Use cases:

During the review of ODF 1.2 draft 7-11 we noticed that the table:protected attribute turned into table:protect. In draft 6, section the attribute was named table:protected in the description, but table:protect in the schema. The proposal to resolve this is to deprecate table:protect attribute, and to introduce a new attribute table:protected into the schema which has the same semantics as table:protect.

Alternatives considered:

Change description to table:protected.

Requested changes to the ODF Standard

Text changes/additions (please state section numbers):

Add to section that describes table:protect (18.1049 in draft 7-12c):

This attribute is deprecated in favor of the table:protected attribute.

Add to the section that describes table:protected (18.1050 in draft 7-12c):


The table:protected attribute specifies whether or not a table cell is protected. Users can not edit the content of a cell that is marked as protected.

The default value for this attribute is false.


Schema changes/additions:

<define name="table-table-cell-attlist" combine="interleave">
                <attribute name="table:protected">
                        <ref name="boolean"/>



This proposal does not add any mandatory features.

Backwards compatibility:

Existing application that have considered the schema to be normative rather than the description will ignore the attribute.

Accessibility impact:

No accessibility impact.
