------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  = Requirements for Word Count =
  Metrics are an important aspect of sizing the i18n task for a given XML document. Metrics encompass word and character counts as well as other relevant counts (pages, lines, screens). There are two aspects here. The first is to decide what will be counted (e.g. ''Localization Directives''). The second is the actual ''syntax'' of the count - The fomat of the metrics information (e.g. ''namespace syntax'').
  
- '''[AZ-''' Just a quick note. We tend to use term 'word counts' to encompass all metrics to do with the i18n process. This is not an accurate definition though. A better term would be ''metrics'' as for some scripts character counts are the only currently available metrics.

  '''[[YS-''' I'm not sure about this. Wouldn't the requirement about word-count in the point of view of ITS, be about how to indicate which parts of the document should be counted, vs. which parts should not? Like in the original discussion here [http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-its/2005JanMar/0003.html].
