good point, we can change that for the windows batch files too.

Good point. I have added an explanation to
http://www.w3.org/International/its/wiki/ITS_Translate_Decorator#Example_input_and_output
at the bottom, could you check if it makes things clearer? Copied below:

The output is the same document as the input, with the following 
additional information:

    * For each element node there is an *itsTve* attribute with the
      value "yes" (element content is translatable) or "no" (element
      content is not translatable).

    * If there are translatable attributes at an element node, that node
      has an *itsTva* attribute which lists the names of these
      attributes, seperated by '#'. Attributes whose name is not listed
      as part of *itsTva* are not translatable.
