Hi Philip,

The problem with a rules file is that it (presumably) would be applied using whatever global rules engine you are using, and (if you
are decorating the tree) that won't work in many cases when overriding is used later on.
It all depends on your implementation, but the bottom line is that applying the defaults should not prevent the overrides to work.
It's especially true with inheritance. In our case we started with a rules file, but we had to switch to hard code the defaults
instead.

For example when you apply a global rule on a node c of a tree /a/b/c/d if later you have a local markup on b it won't be inherited
by c or d because c would need to be explicitly overridden.

Subject: Translate html 5 defaults

Hey Guys,
    We are revisiting the translate data category, which we previously had fully conformant, as a result of the new html 5 defaults.
We were wondering if there is a rules file that has been created for the html 5 defaults, otherwise we're going to have to do our
own custom logic to deal with all the defaults.
Thanks,
Philip
