Subject: Term Identification: Requirement

Here is a draft for the Term Identification requirement. Please post any comments on this.

[Term identification]

It should be possible to identify terms inside an element or a span together with related attributes. 

The capability to specify terms within the source content is important for terminology management and index creation. It facilitates, for example, the creation of glossaries and indexes, and also allows terminology validation between source and target documents.
Each term should be accompanied by term attributes depending on identification purposes. If it's for glossary data, term attributes may be part-of-speech and a term type, while index terms may have a sorting string.

Members discussed TMX-Link and TBX-Link as references (see Minutes 2005-03-03: ITS teleconference), and the both standards should be reviewed when the solution for this requirement is reviewed.
