Just before the door closes, please add support to sparse punctuation inside the address element.

    Can you give an example of what you mean? I thought it already did allow sparse punctuation:

    <address>
    John and Jane Doe
    <street>100 Main Street</street>
    <city>Anytown</city>, <state>NY</state> <postcode>12345</postcode>
    <country>USA</country>
    </address>

    We're still waiting for a reply. Are you still interested in this RFE?

    Hi, sorry for the very late reply. Thanks for the response.
    I was referring to the wrong element, since i want sparse punctuation
    to be allowed in the <affiliation>.
    I know it's a tight structured container,
    but it seems to me that even in this kind of elements (<author>, similarly, comes to mind),
    db could have a mixed approach, permitting the use of:

    punctuation spaces (0020 and 00A0)

    The submittor changed the request from db:address to db:affiliation.
    Adding any punctuation requires adding TEXT to the mix for
    the element. The Committee felt that adding TEXT solely for
    punctuation was not appropriate, and that any punctuation
    would best be generated by a stylesheet operating on the
    well-defined children in the affiliation element.
