Hello Marcos,

in case you are also aiming at support for "other ITS elements and
attributes": you could adapt the following tests from the ITS test suite
which the ITS Working Group used for attributes at the its:span element.

Local - In <its:span>
Local - In <its:span> with mixed notes
Result <http://www.w3.org/International/its/tests/test1/LocNote4-result.xml>
Result <http://www.w3.org/International/its/tests/test2/LocNote4-result.xml>
Result <http://www.w3.org/International/its/tests/test3/LocNote4-result.xml>
Local - In <its:span>
As you can see from the results, the implementation just has to be able to
make the ITS information available for further processing. So if you have
build three similar tests for these ITS data categories and one for
directionality (see Richards pointer), you are done IMO.
