Subject: RE: [xliff] Attributes for XLIFF 2.0

I think this is a good goal. It might also be an ambitious goal (assuming we' want to accommodate the not just http://, but also file:// - and accommodate the various *flavors* of URL formatting between OS', browsers, etc.).

It's certainly do-able to write a durable regex. Just need to try to think of all the ways the URLs could be expressed,  



. . .to name a few.

Subject: [xliff] Attributes for XLIFF 2.0


One of the most common problems in XLIFF is the difficulty to validate
attributes. This is something we can improve a bit in 2.0.

Attributes that contain a file location, like "original" in <file> or "href"
in <external-file> are supposed to contain the location of a file. We cannot
check whether the file exists, but we can make sure that the location is
written in a standard way. I propose to enforce the use of URLs in XLIFF 2.0
for attributes that point to files; URL validation can be included in the
schema using regular expressions.
