Dear all, 


I send you the text. If you agree, you can close the action 262.


«Allowed characters is not intended to disallow HTML markup. The purpose is
to restrict the content to various characters only, like when the content is
used for URL or filename generation. In most of the
Web-Content-Management-Systems content is divided into several fields. Some
fields are restricted to plain text, while in other fields HTML fragments
are allowed.

For fields which only allow plain text, the current ITS 2.0 data categories
can only applied globally and not with local attributes. This issue should
be addressed in another way, apart from the ITS 2.0 standard. One way would
be to allow HTML in these fields if possible, or using an extra field which
allows HTML input and save the plain text of this extra field in the plain
text field.»

All the best,
