Reproducible: Always
Created attachment 276031 [details] Demonstration of bug report The insert should copy (i.e. insert) a date element with a text node content, but instead it copies a date element with an empty element child, which is only present at the bind location (not the origin location).
Orbeon and Sidewinder both behave the same, which is different from our processor. We need to figure out why and who is right. According to the spec, "1. The insert context is determined. If the bind attribute is present or if the context attribute is not given, the insert context is the in-scope evaluation context". So to me, that means in this testcase the evaluation context should be: instance('containers')/target/date since that is the nodeset that @bind gives. So to me we are behaving correctly, but we certainly aren't behaving like the other processors.
I asked the W3C what the correct behavior is: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-forms/2007Aug/0001.html
(In reply to comment #3) > I asked the W3C what the correct behavior is: > http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-forms/2007Aug/0001.html > The WG has spoken...the result from @bind should NOT provide the context for xpath evaluations on the xf:insert element. Orbeon and Sidewinder's behaviors are correct. Merle, please fix this accordingly. If this points out a flaw in the testsuite testcase, please mention that to Steve or Keith. Thanks.

Comment on attachment 279597 [details] [diff] [review] patch 2 Not sure if XForms patches need approval while in M8 freeze. XForms is not part of the build.
Comment on attachment 279597 [details] [diff] [review] patch 2 According to mozilla.dev.planning, this doesn't need approval
