Hi Felix,

But do we get issues when using this data type  (or any non

also using language tags on the literal? :

Agreed, getting the annotation to work with XLIFF/ITS in a way that can 
used used in exisitng tools should be the primary aim here.

The use of NIF is more relevant if you wanted to make the content 
available to NLP tools that could understand NIF - which is a different 
use case.
