      1. Change first paragraph of 9.8 <table:dde-links> from:

      The <table:dde-links> container element stores all DDE links within a spreadsheet document. Every link contains the DDE Source and the data of the last connection.

      to

      The <table:dde-links> container element stores all DDE links for use in spreadsheet formulas. Every link contains the DDE Source and the data of the last connection.

      2. Remove 14.6.2 Container for DDE Connection Declarations
      (We just repeat there what we say in the element descriptions and the schema)

      3. Amend 14.6.4 <text:dde-connection-decl>:

      The <text:dde-connection-decl> element defines a DDE connection for use in DDE text fields. Multiple DDE fields can refer to one DDE connection by using the same name.

      4. Change 14.6.5 <table:dde-link> from

      The <table:dde-link> element contains DDE source data in a <office:dde-source> element and a simple table element that may be used to cache the data of a DDE source. The table does not need a name and does not contain style information. Only the data contained in the cell attributes is used. The cells themselves remain empty.

      5. Change the description of from

      The <office:dde-source> element is a container for DDE connection data of tables. The usage of this element differs between spreadsheet and text document tables. For text document tables, the element is contained within the table's <table:table> element directly.

      Description

      The explanation for <office:dde-source> describes different cases with respect to tables, but makes no mention of how this works for <text:section>. In fact, it says the element is a container for DDE connection data of tables.

      The description in ODF 1.1 section 4.4.3 is broader than this.
