Subject: RE: [xliff] [xliff-inline] Representing information for the starting/ending/standalone parts
I don’t see how using only <g> and <x/> would be a step forward for non XML source formats. Unless the <x> tag is greatly extended with additional attributes like the <itag> that was proposed for TMX 2.0. Consider this old style HTML example:
This <b> is traditional <i>HTML</b> with overlap</i>.
It can of course be tagged using <x> tags but we then lose all information on the pairing of the native codes like this:
This <x id=”1” /> is traditional <x id=”2” />HTML<x id=”3” /> with overlap<x id=”4” />.
Using <g> is not possible since the result would not be XML.
I wasn't arguing to use <itag>, but rather to look at it for anything useful that might help.
