  '''[[YS-''' I think we want "unique within the document", which is much easier to insure. As far as making it unique outside of the document, I would guess one would simply need to add the document full path, relative path or filename, depending on the context of work (just like HTML anchors). Globably unique could be achieved also if needed, but I'm not sure if it would require a description of the document set. For example: MS GUIDs are "globally unique" and-I think-don't deal with document set(?) (but obviously it would be nicer to work with more human-readable IDs).''']]'''
  
+ '''[[AZ-''' The best method is to attribute a unique ID to the document and then have unique ids within the document for individual text units. In this way the combination of unique document ID and unique text unit id are guaranteed to be totally unique. This is similar to Yves' suggestion, but separates out text unit ids from the document id. In order to achieve a unique document ID you take a CRC of the document and add to it the UTC current time in milliseconds as a modifier. All of this is covered by the proposed LISA OSCAR xml:tm specification (http://www.xml-intl.com/docs/specification/xml-tm.html).''']]'''
  === Challenge/Issue ===
  
  In order to most effectively re-use translated text where content is re-used (either across update versions or across deliverables) it is necessary to have a unique and persistent id associated with the element.
