Dear i18n WG,
During the call to transition the Widgets Packaging and Configuration 
specification (P&C) [1] to CR, the Director requested that aside from 
the MUST assertions the Web Apps WG test the optional aspects of the 
specification in our test-suite [2].

As you are aware, to facilitate the localization of text nodes within 
XML elements in a configuration document, a user agent may support the 
Internationalization Tag Set's its:span element and the its:dir 
attribute (It is optional for a user agent to support other ITS elements 
and attributes).

In order to test ITS support, the WebApps WG would appreciate some 
guidance with designing a handful of test cases that the i18n WG would 
consider suitable to provide interoperability across implementations.

The its:span element can be used as a child element of the following 
elements of the configuration document. In addition, the its:dir 
attribute can be used in the following elements of the configuration 

     * name
     * description
     * author
     * license

Any guidance or help the i18n WG can provide us with designing test 
would be greatly appreciated. We are intending to transition this 
document to Proposed Recommendation at the end of January, but we would 
like to have the i18n tests done ASAP.

I'm happy to work on the tests, so long as someone from i18n can guide 
me :) Hope the i18n WG can again help us out!

Kind regards,
