Re: Internationalized CLASS attributes
There is another side to this problem as well. Suppose I put
class=name as an attribute and a Frenchman puts class=nom.
Sematically these are the same, but there is no way that case conversion
will help to determine this.
What we really need is something, like the RFCs relating to REV and REL,
which suggest a set of useful class names that could be applied by anyone,
irrespective of their country of origin. Admittedly most people would not
then be able to use their native language to name such transportable
classes, but the up-side would be that they would be able to identify
information of the class they require without having to search for all the
possible names for the class.
See article on machine translation in the Oct WIRED. Wouldn't it be
nice if there was a namespace for semantic equivalents...
