Subject: CFD for item 127 and item 150 (FW: Ownership of the xml:space issue?)

While I am sure there is no controversy on xml:space after the very thorough brainstorming we did on the topic at the last two meeting, and after the two robust threads on the issues, as I take a closer look, I am not 100% sure we explicitly passed CFDs for 127 and 150.


So I now call for dissent for 127 in the form of item 3. below. And I call for dissent for 150 in the form of item 4. below.


If nobody posts to the contrary this week, I will consider these items resolved.

Subject: [xliff] Ownership of the xml:space issue?




I think we said you would take over ownership of the xml:space issue once it became an editorial issue? Not trying to dodge work, so if this is not true I can make the updates.


I think four things need to be done based on our ballot, and on the CFDs for 127 and 150 (where the CFD ends and the ballot begins is a little foggy – so I think we should just reference the meeting minutes and ballot results in the tracker – up to you).


1.       Remove xml:space from the attribute list of <source> ( and <target> ( Also notice there is a constraint on <target> that will need to be edited.

2.       Add OPTIONAL xml:space to <xliff> (, <file> (, <group>(, and unit (

3.       Change the Default value in to (https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201401/msg00016.html):


Default value:


        For data:

                'preserve'. Note also that the 'default' value is to be interpreted as 'preserve' for the data content (See section

4.7.5 White Spaces).


        Other elements:

                The default value is inherited from the closest ancestor defining xml:space. If no ancestor specify xml:space the default is 'default'.



And (https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/201401/msg00019.html) change the Used in from <source>, <target> to <xliff>, <file>, <group>, <unit>


4.       Change 4.7.5


- from “For the elements <sc>, <ec>, <ph> and <data>: The white spaces of their content MUST be preserved in all cases, even if the value for xml:space is set or inherited as default.”  


- to “For the element <data>: The white spaces of its content MUST be preserved in all cases, even if the value for xml:space is set or inherited as default.”


Please let me know if you want to make the changes, or if you want me to.
