It might be better to have a couple of XML and HTML5 stuffed with all the data categories we can manage and generate the XLIFF from that. Actually such XML/HTML file could be useful as a more general test file for developer (not necessarily for conformance tests).

I would put such files into a separate directory under 
https://github.com/finnle/ITS-2.0-Testsuite/
and write a short documentation 1-2 paragraphs explaining that this is 
not part of the conformance testing.

I'm putting Karl into the loop since I think in the Cocomore / 
Linguaserve also a lot of HTML documents with multiple data categories 
have been created. Maybe a subset of these could also be input to the 
XLIFF example file set?

Best,

Felix

>> I just received a request from Alan Melby of the BYU Translation Research Group (TRG) for some sample (real) translation data in XLIFF format decorated with ITS 2.0 markup. Is there anything publicly available as sample data of this nature? The goal is to see some real data with at least a few ITS 2.0 categories in the data so Alan Melby’s team can get a view of it in a practical setting. Bigger data sets would be better, but even small ones of a few dozens of segments would be useful.
