- This document describes requirements for a list of guidelines and a tag set [[RI perhaps we should begin saying things like "a set of recommended approaches to developing schemas" rather than "a tag set" since it is looking like we may not simply recommend use of a single set of tags or a single way of using them?]] which address issues related to internationalization [[RI perhaps it would be clearer to say "international use of document formats and localization of XML content" rather than 'internationalization and localization of XML content']] and localization of XML content.
+ This document describes requirements for a list of guidelines and a set of recommended approaches to developing schemas which address issues related to international use of document formats and localization of XML content.
  
- Regardless of the final form and syntax the tag set will ultimately take, it is possible to envision its usage at different levels:
+ Regardless of the final form and syntax such approaches will ultimately take, it is possible to envision their usage at different levels:
  
  A. In a document instance, grouped in a single location, to associate information with multiple parts of the document using some kind of linking or addressing mechanism. Such usage would be similar to the <style> element in an HTML document.

  C. In schemas, along with the definition of an element or an attribute, to provide data categories for internationalization and localization.
  
- The tag set is not meant to describe the configuration settings (i.e. localization properties) of localization tools for XML content. However, it is expected that the tools will be able to infer such properties from the information provided by the tag set. [[RI we could do with an example to explain this to mere mortals ;-)]]
+ Such approaches are not meant to describe the configuration settings (i.e. localization properties) of localization tools for XML content. However, it is expected that the tools will be able to infer such properties from the information provided by the ITS implementations. For example, the tools should be able to build a list of all nodes that are to be translated in a given document using the ITS inormation in the document itself and in its corresponding schema(s) or DTD.
