Subject: RE: [xliff] Use of fs:fs/fs:subFs in <note> element?

Hi Yoshito,

The spec does not provide an easy way to put links in notes. Inline tags are not supported in <note> so the only (and ugly) way would be to use escaped HTML like in your example. 

I would prefer to allow using the "source" attribute in <note>, as used in the <gls:term> or <gls:translation> elements from the Glossary module.

I am investigating how to carry translation note including link for external materials.

In XLIFF 2.1 specification, <note> element can have optional format style attributes â fs:fs ad fs:subFs. And the format style attributes from HTML including many inline elements. However, I have no idea how we can use them in <note>.
For example, if you want HTML fragment:
  Please check <a href="">the screen capture</a>.
as <note> value, I may put fs:fs attribute like <notes fs:fs="html">, but it looks there is no way to represent inline <a> element in this case.
If this is a part of <source> or <target>, I understand it can be represented as below:
  <source>Please check <pc id="1" fs:fs="a" fs:subFs="href, http://foo.com/123.jpg ">the screen capture</pc>.
But, I don't think <pc> is allowed in <note> value If my understanding is correct.
Of course, if we put <a> tag as "&lt;a>" in <note> body, it is valid, but I suspect this is what the spec suggests.
    <note fs:fs="html">Please check &lt;a href="">the screen capture&lt;/a>.</note>
Above should be valid, but I think this is not what XLIFF spec author thought about.
Do I misunderstand the specification? If not, what is the typical use case for fs:fs/fs:SubFs attribute in <note> element?
