Subject: Profile: inline codes in sftware string

Hi all,

Since some of us are (or will be) working on Java, .NET resources, etc. I
was wondering if we could have a consistant approach on inline codes for
those type of resources.

Many strings have variable palceholders. For example: "{0}" in Java and
.NET, "%s" in RC, etc.

Most current translation tools do not do anything with them (i.e. they are
treated as text). But some companies (customers and providers) prefer to
actually treat them as inline code as they are protected and can be verified
during translation.

In my opinion it would be good to have a recommendation (consistant across
formats) in either they should be treated as inline code or not.
