153. Misleading wording (rank of conversion)

Section: 12.2.4.3  [over.ics.rank]     Status: TC1     Submitter: Valentin Bonnard     Date: 6 Aug 1999

12.2.4.3 [over.ics.rank] bullet 3.1 sub-bullet 2 says,

the rank of S1 is better than the rank of S2 (by the rules defined below)...
This wording is confusing. The word "below" refers to paragraph 4 (which may not be clear), and the bulk of paragraph 4 deals with comparing conversion sequences whose "rank" is the same.

Proposed resolution (10/00):

In 12.2.4.3 [over.ics.rank] paragraph 3, change

the rank of S1 is better than the rank of S2 (by the rules defined below)
to
the rank of S1 is better than the rank of S2, or S1 and S2 have the same rank and are distinguishable by the rules in the paragraph below
