There are 22 <valDesc>s for attributes of datatype data.word. Of these, four incorrectly imply that *any* character can be used, when in fact there are entire classes of Unicode characters that are not eligible. In particular, characters that fall into the category of marks, separator, or other cannot be used. (List attached.) These <valDesc>s are for:
n= of att.global
rend= of att.global
sortKey= of <term>
value= of <metSym>

(In addition those for sortKey= of att.entryLike and loc= of <app> were problematic, but these were such easy fixes, I’ve gone ahead and changed “any” to “a” in the tagdocs at revision 6665.)

    Most of these valDescs are redundant, since we habve a definition for data.word , but I agree they shouldn't be misleading. Have improved these a bit at version 6669
