  '''[[FS-''' If we want s.t. like this, we need Schematron, or speaking generally XPath and possibly XPointer. That is, we need more than a Schema language in our sense - DTD, RELAX NG, XML Schema - can provide. We should note this fact here, or specify the "wording parts of a <text> element" to "marked up parts of a <text> element" ''']]'''
  
+ '''[[YS-''' I'm not sure if I follow this. Maybe the paragraph is not phrased correctly. I meant that we need a way to tell that an element or an attribute is translatable (at the schema or at a top-document level) and also a mean to override such setting. for example: by default elements of a given resource-kind schema are not translatable, but all <p> element in that schema are translatable (the exception), but a specific <p> could hold only non-translatable text (exception within the exception). One can code this last element with a simple its:translate="no". No need for Schematron or XPath, etc. (?)
+ 
+ I guess I probably should not say 'exception' for the rule <p> is translatable, it's just a rule that override the default rule). Am I making sense?''']]'''
+ 
  The mechanism should be able to map existing elements that already carry implicitly or explicitly the translatability information.
  
  Example 1: The <code> element in XHTML may be an indicator the its content is not translatable.
