Subject: Fwd: [ubl-dev] [ANNC] XML-Spreadsheet for UBL v1.0 IDD draft Available

Hi Chee-Kai

Congratulations on all this. Looks very useful. Personally  :-)   I
think the XML
Spreadsheet format you use is quite neat, simple and elegant - fairly optimal.

Just one question (for now): Do you know what tools might be able to read the
various encodings of the IDD XML spreadsheet? I can't find any that can read
several different character sets on the same page. I think I have the
right fonts
installed (though maybe I'm wrong) but the characters don't display no matter
which tool I use (IE, text editors, XML Spy...).

Anyway, excellent work - thanks for sharing it with us.

Best regards

>    * Translate UBL schema terms on-the-fly
>    * Translate UBL instance terms within documents on-the-fly
>    * Use as accurate screen  labels for user-inputs in software and

>    * Use as help-text for user-input text labels
>    * Use as on-the-fly PDF translation for archival of incoming/outgoing UBL

>    * Use as linguistically localized  print-outs of  e-documents, such as
