Dear RDF Working Group (sending this also explicitly to Guus, David and Sandro as co-chairs / staff contact, to raise their awareness), with CC to the MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group,

with this mail I am asking the RDF Working Group to review the ITS 2.0 draft at [1]. The latest draft under TR space is a last call draft [2]. A diff between the two drafts is here [3]. Note that during last call we did a lot of changes to the informative sections 1-2 (which are not relevant for the normative definition of ITS 2.0).

ITS 2.0 provides metadata items ("data categories") to foster the (automated) creation and processing of multilingual Web content: mostly HTML and XML. What may be of special interest for you is the ITS 2.0 approach to convert markup documents into RDF. This results in triples that make use of the NIF ontology [4]. See the definition of the NIF conversion algorithm at [5] and tests (= examples) from our test suite in the implementation report [6]. Of course a general review from the RDF WG would be nice, but I assume that this feature of ITS 2.0 is of most interest for you.

Our last call period already ended 11 June, and my apologies for being late with this request. If you need more info to move this forward please let me know.

Best regards,

Felix Sasaki (co-chair and staff contact for the MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group)
