Hi Christian, Felix, and all,


Here are my notes on section 2:

---1: Paragraph 1 and everywhere.

Maybe thing like "its:translate='yes'" could/(should?) be formatted to look like code rather than put bteween quotes?


---2: Pargaraph 2:

In "the "style" element" 'style' should be formatted with the <elem> markup not between quote. Same for "style attribute" (to format
with the <att> element).


---3: first bullet:

"local approachputs ITS " is missing a space before "puts".


---4: Pargaraph "ITS markup can be used with XML documents (e.g. a DocBook article), or schemas (e.g. an XSD for a proprietary
document format). Since each usage defines some specific requirements, ITS markup in XML documents may look slightly different than
ITS markup in schemas."

The last sentence is to be dropped or reworded since we don't have a distinction between document and schema anymore.


---5: Examples

Reminder: Many examples have extra blank lines that should be removed.


---6: Paragraph above Example 9:

A) "thetranslate attribute " missing space before "translate"

B) I think "...play a part in identifying which content is to be translated and which not."
Should be "play a part in identifying which content is to be translated and which does not." 'does' is missing. (Native speaker to
confirm/correct please).


---7: Pargaraph below Example 9:

A) "used with a "style" element " 'style' should formatted as <elem>

B) " The head of a document can contain..." I'm not sure we should say "the head" ITS rules can be placed anywhere the schema
designer wants, not just the head.

C) "As their name suggests, this attribute..." I would say: "As its name suggests, this attribute "


---8: bullet 1 in the first 4-bullets group:

"...all 2p" elements..." should be "...all p elements" with p formatted as <elem>.


---9: last bullet in first 4-bullet group:

A) "It is possible to map ITS markup to existing markup (for example the term element in DITA)"
I would use something else than 'map' since we may need that term for 'real mapping' some day. "associate" maybe?

B) "term" should be formatted as <elem> not italics.


---10: Paragraph below the 2-bullet group:

A) "ITS markup in some cases appears " I would add commas:
"ITS markup, in some cases, appears "

B) "corresponding selector attribute(in the example translateSelector)." There is a missing space after 'attribute' and
translateSelector should be selector.

---11: last bullet of the 4-bullet group above Example 10:

"ITS markup to map to existing markup (for example the term element in DITA)" Same as before for 'map'. Now I realize that 'Mapping'
is used in section 5.4. Maybe this could be replaced by "association" or something similar? I'm concern about using the term 'map'
because of possible 'real mapping' coming later


---12: Paragraph above Example 10:

"The power of ITS selector attributes comes at a price: rules related to overwriting/precedence, and inheritance, have to be
established."

A) 'selector' should (probably) be bolded/blue and linked to its definition.

B) 'overwriting' should probably be 'overriding'. (same for the title of Example 10)


---13: Paragraph below Example 10:

A) "selector" should be bolded/blue/linked to its definition

B) "the question arises what the value for the translate data category of the p element which has local markup is. " Maybe better:
"a question arises: What is the value for the translatability data category of the p element which has local markup. "
(a vs the, translatability vs translate, and move 'is')

C) It looks a bit strange: the reader will see that the 'value' is no since we have translate="no". The fact that we are talking
about the "computed value" ?


That's all for now.
