------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  If translatable text is provided as an attribute value rather than element content, the following problems may arise:
  
-  * It is difficult to apply to the text of the attribute value meta-information such as no-translate flags, designer's notes, etc.
+  * It is difficult to apply to the text of the attribute value meta-information such as no-translate flags, designer's notes, etc. (Except when using mechanisms such as XPath or XPointer).
- 
- [[CL If we go down the route of XPath or XPointer (see Felix' remarks on translatibility) this does no longer hold.]]
  
   * The difficulty to attach unique identifiers to translatable attribute text makes it more complicated to use ID-based leveraging tools.
