Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Multi-language documentation

/ Yann Dirson <ydirson@alcove.fr> was heard to say:

| DocBook's "lang" attribute does not have this meaning of alternative
| text.  It's here to allow you to quote things in foreign languages I
| think.

The lang attribute identifies the language of the text contained in the
element on which it appears. If you have more the one language in a
single document, it can be used for either purpose.

I would use <foreignphrase> to identify a small piece of multi-lingual
text that was supposed to be quoted in a document.

                                        Be seeing you,
