Hi everyone,

I don't think we have followed up on the start of discussion we had last meeting about the process of ITS elements when they are
inside a document. (See http://www.w3.org/2006/07/05-i18nits-minutes.html#item06)

Currently I think the three implementations we have assume these ITS elements are "invisible". That it, we act like they are not
there: for example, we don't extract as translatable any <locInfo> content.

I also think there is no mention of any specific behavior for ITS elements in the specification. So, currently the implementations
(and some examples) are 'wrong'.

Richard pointed out that, in some cases, we may have to apply localization action to such content.

Felix proposed: "have the rule "data category processing should exclude markup from that data category". This would mean (I think)
for example that the locInfo data cat would not be applied to <locInfo>, but translatability, directionality, etc. would be.

Any ideas, suggestions, comments on this topic?

Cheers,
-yves
