Hi all,

"Best Practice 8: Provide a way to specify comments for translators" 
talks currently about local ITS markup and its:locNoteRule . In this 
way, readers are not aware of the functionality to point to existing 
comments (or localization notes, speaking more generally). I would 
propose to add a note about locNotePointer and locNoteRefPointer to an 
existing paragraph.

existing paragraph:

Make also sure that the its:rules element is available somewhere in your 
documents, for example in the header part if there is one. The its:rules 
element provides access to the its:locNoteRule element which can be used 
to specify translation-related notes and instruction at a more general 
level.

proposal:

Make also sure that the its:rules element is available somewhere in your 
documents, for example in the header part if there is one. The its:rules 
element provides access to the its:locNoteRule element which can be used 
to specify translation-related notes and instruction at a more general 
level. The its:locNotRule element also allows for specifying existing 
comments in an XML document via the locNotePointer attribute, or 
providing an existing reference to comments via the locNoteRefPointer 
attribute.

Cheers,

Felix
