   * Translatable attributes can create problems when they are prepared for localization because they can occur within the content of a translatable element, breaking it into different parts, and possibly altering the sentence structure.
  
-  * The language selection mechanism applies to the content of the element where it is declared, including its attribute values. If the text in an attribute is in a different language than the text of the element content, one cannot set the language for both correctly.
+  * The language identification mechanism (i.e. xml:lang) applies to the content of the element where it is declared, including its attribute values. If the text of an attribute is in a different language than the text of the element content, one cannot set the language for both correctly.
  
-  * In some languages bidirectional markers may be needed to provide a correct display. Tags cannot be used within an attribute value. One can use Unicode control characters instead, but this is not recommended (see the W3C Note and Unicode Technical Report [http://www.w3.org/TR/unicode-xml/ Unicode in XML & Other Markup Languages]).
