Hi Merle,

The XLIFF Technical Committee at OASIS published guidelines for
converting the following formats to XLIFF:

 * HTML
 * Java Properties Bundles
 * PO (Portable Objects)

You can find them at http://www.xliff.org

Guidelines for converting ICU Resource Bundles to XLIFF are almost
ready to be published.

It would be interesting to have guidelines for converting XML documents
decorated with ITS markup to XLIFF format. This is something that this
group could prepare.

Best regards,
Rodolfo
