Subject: RE: [xliff] Proposal for Segmentation Notation in XLIFF

Title: Message
I'm more than a little concerned that non-clonable <g> elements prohibit segmentation of text. I'm also unclear as to why it is necessary to potentially exclude any text from the original <source> when marking the segment boundaries. In this case, we can have the situation where the sum of the parts does not equal the whole. If SRX (which is based on Unicode TR-29) is being considered to use with XLIFF, this standard defines where a segmentation break should occur; not where a segment begins and ends. As such, there's no provision for excluding text once it is segmented. Given the amount of assumed functionality that is being passed on to the XLIFF editor I think it would be reasonable to assume that this editor would also be capable of stripping unwanted whitespace from the start or end of the segment where necessary.
Is there a documented reason why the <mrk> element was chosen to represent segmentation and not a new, empty element such as <seg/>?

Subject: [xliff] Proposal for Segmentation Notation in XLIFF

Hi all,
The segmentation subcommittee has voted unequivocally to put forward the following proposal to the main XLIFF committee on how to represent segmentation in XLIFF files.
I would hereby like to request a formal review of the proposal by the XLIFF Committee for its inclusion in the XLIFF draft specification.
The following document explains and details the proposed changes to the XLIFF specification:
Best regards,
