Subject: RE: [xliff] Current XLIFF schema

Shigemichi Yazawa,

Thank you for your comments.

Converting XHTML tags to <g ctype="tagName"...> would be time consuming.
Many values for 'ctype' would need to be added. There are more than just a
few tags.

XLIFF editors should simply ignore unknown tags. If new XLIFF tags are added
to the standard, then existing XLIFF editors should still work. This means
they should ignore unknown (newer) XLIFF tags.

In XML it is possible to add a namespace prefix without changing the meaning
of the tag. For example, <xlf:source> and <xlf:g> are the same as <source>
and <g> assuming that the xlf namespace is properly defined.

Do most XLIFF editors properly handle the namespace prefix or do they parse
the tag name assuming there is no prefix?

In this case, I would say, convert <p> to <g> as well. The idea here
in <source> and <target> elements is to make the text abstract so it
can be treated in a uniform way in an editor or as a TM segment
regardless the original file format. User defined tags here will have
a significant impact on the interoperability of XLIFF docement.
