Hi Felix,

I just checked the current draft and saw that the current wording is close to what I suggested. Possibly, the following changes to the "note" may add further clarity.

Orig>The data categories differ with respect to defaults in the XML document for compatibility
Orig>reasons with existing standards and practices. For example it is common practice that
Orig>information about translation refers only to textual content of an element. Hence, the 
Orig>Translate data category selects the same information as a default .

Mod>The data categories differ with respect to defaults. This is due to existing standards and practices.
Mod>It is common practice for example that information about translation refers only to textual content of an element. Mod>Thus, the default selection for the Translate data category is the textual content.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Felix,

Thanks for working on the action item. I suggest the following changes to your proposed wording.

Regards,
Christian

Orig>The following table summarizes the position of data categories, their default values, and their inheritance
Orig>and overriding behaviors.

Mod>The following table summarizes for each data category which selection, default value, and inheritance
Mod>and overriding behavior applies.

Orig>Default values are assumed if no ITS markup (global or local) is applicable to an element 
Orig>or attribute node in a document. 
Orig>For example, if there is no translateRule element and no translate element available, elements 
Orig>are translatable, and attributes are not translatable.

Mod>Default values apply if both local or global selection are absent.
Mod>The default value for the data category translate for example
Mod>mandates that elements are translatable, and attributes are not translatable
Mod>if there is no translateRule element and no translate attribute available. 

Orig>Inheritance describes whether ITS information is applicable to nested elements and attached attributes.
Orig>For example, the ITS information its:translate="yes" in
Orig><p its:translate="yes">We define <term its:term="yes"><emph>discoursal</emph> point of view</term> as ...</p>
Orig>means that all elements inside the p element are translatable. In contrast, the ITS information its:code="yes"
Orig>at the term element applies only to this element. It does not mean that the nested emph element is also a term.

Mod>Inheritance describes whether ITS information is applicable to child elements of XML nodes and attributes related
Mod>to these the XML nodes or their child notes.
Mod>The inheritance for the data category translate for example mandates that all child elements of XML nodes
Mod>are translatable whereas all attributes related
Mod>to these the XML nodes or their child notes are not translatable.

Orig>Overriding describes whether ITS information can be overriden or not. Overriding is not possible
Orig>for all data categories without inheritance, that is the Terminology and the Ruby data category. 

Mod>Overriding describes whether ITS information can be overriden/cancelled or not. Overriding is only possible
Mod>for data categories with inheritance. Overriding thus is not possible for the Terminology and the Ruby data category.

Hi all,

I did my action item
http://www.w3.org/2006/09/20-i18nits-minutes.html#action12
Felix to add an explanation for Default Values, Inheritance and
Overriding after the table in sec. 6.1

Please have a look at
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#datacategories-defaults-etc
. (I added an explanation before the table)

Cheers,

Felix
