Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-704) Public Comment:OpenDocument 1.2v7-02: Table of Contents

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-704?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=11750#action_11750 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-704:

Patrick, the whole point of having the natural-language titles along with the formal tag and attribute names is that the natural-languge titles *can* be translated and also can be spoken in the translated-to language by assistive technologies.  The formal tag and attribute names must not be translated and their pronunciation will either be spelled or spoken in English.

I am not recommending what the natural-language titles should be.  Presumably one can do better than the ODF 1.0/1.1 ones if that is a problem?  (Although similarity might be good in support of those folks who struggle with figuring out where we have moved or lost stuff in the new organization.)

It seems to me that we are going around in circles on this one and we need to elevate this to a policy question concerning the value and use of titles in the headings of the specification and in the table of content (and in an index if anyone were ever so bold).

[Note: I have a separate concern that the current organization over-emphasizes schema and the XML-level syntax to the exclusion of the model that the XML structure carries, but I think the horse is already out of the barn on that one.]
