Subject: RE: [xliff] Uppercasing conformance keywords in OASIS specs

The template we use in the specification was provided by OASIS and it uses lowercase for those special terms. The template is newer than the requirement you mention.


Notice that we explicitly say that special word meanings are defined in RFC 2119 and it does not require key words to be capitalized.


Capitalization would be important in the conformance clause but we have not defined it yet.


BTW, the official OASIS template explicitly says key words are not capitalized as a matter of writing style.

Subject: [xliff] Uppercasing conformance keywords in OASIS specs


Hi all, Rodolfo, I was recently rereading some OASIS policies and it came up today in the SC f-2-f.

There is an OASIS policy that explicitly states this:

RFC2119 allows both uppercase and lowercase to be used for a keyword, however to enable easy identification of the keywords and consistency across specifications uppercase MUST be used for keywords at all times. 



Unfortunately our current draft is in conflict with this regulation. I suppose that we should comply..
