Subject: RE: [xliff] <sm/> and <em/>
At the top of my head I don’t think the example should be valid.
One could have a lone <sm/> or <em/> in a segment. But I don’t think it can be isolated like <sc/> or <ec/>.
I’ll try to see what is the code logic behind letting this to be valid in the Okapi library.
I wanted to ask about <sm/> and <em/> tags. In specification it is said that the marker can be created by using <mrk> tag pair , or the pair of <sm> and <em> elements. What it doesn’t say if you can have situation where only <sm/> or <em/> is present, e.g.:
<xliff xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:2.0" xmlns:fs="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:fs:2.0" xmlns:slr="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:sizerestriction:2.0" version="2.0" xml:space="preserve" srcLang="en-GB" trgLang="fr-FR">
<file id="f1" original="myfile">
<segment id="id1" >
<source>Example of an sm with <sm id="2" type="term"/> term</source>
It seems both Okapi validator and MS XLIFF OM validate the example above as valid file. If this is indeed correct I believe we should enhance the specification and make sure this bit is explained a bit better.
