ITS and XHTML 1.0

Here is a try at XHTML with ITS. I've used the proposed notation. This is a possible ITS documentRule to handle XHTML files: (I
though I had posted this altready, but can't find it in the mail archives, so here is it)


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<its:documentRules xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its">

 <its:translateRule its:selector="//h:script" its:translate="no"/>
 <its:translateRule its:selector="//h:style" its:translate="no"/>

 <!-- Special attributes: Note that some choices are just guess based on personal experience, for example I think hidden <input>
fields are usually not transltable, but that may not be the case all the time. -->
 <its:translateRule its:selector="//h:*/@abbr" its:translate="yes"/>
 <its:translateRule its:selector="//h:*/@accesskey" its:translate="yes"/>

 <its:withinTextRule its:selector="//h:img | //h:a | //h:font | //h:center | //h:s"/>

 <!-- Language mapping not sure about the value for langMap, shouldn't it "//*/@lang"? -->
 <its:langRule its:langMap="@lang" />

 <!-- There is no ruby markup in XHTML 1.0 -->
