[Bug 12417] HTML5 is missing attribute for specifying translatability of content


--- Comment #64 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2012-01-13 22:54:31 UTC ---
Ok. Since this is becoming a widely-felt problem, it seems like a more formal
solution than class="notranslate" is due. Based on the proposals above, I
suggest that we add a translate="" global attribute to HTML, with two valid
values, "yes" and "no", with the obvious semantics. The value would inherit to
descendants, much like "lang". Invalid values (translate="foo", etc) would be
ignored. A missing value (translate="") would be treated like translate="yes".

Any objections?
