Subject: RE: [dita] Requirement for <glossary-sort-as> element

Title: Requirement for <glossary-sort-as> element

Hi –


I think we should take this up in the Translation subcommittee. I’ll convene a meeting to discuss the issues and consider bringing this up as a DITA 1.3 proposal.

Subject: [dita] Requirement for <glossary-sort-as> element


Hi everyone,

A requirement that comes to our attention from time to time is for glossary elements to include a <glossary-sort-as> element, equivalent to the <index-sort-as> element. It appears to be essential for making a glossary sort properly in Japanese; one thing I’ve heard from multiple organizations using DITA is that no existing tool does correct automatic sorting of Japanese glossary and index entries.

Deborah Pickett mentioned this way back in 2007: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/dita-users/message/4829 . Has a proposal been brought forward yet? If not, is it straightforward enough to consider for DITA 1.2 or should I add it to the 1.3 wishlist?
