Q/A Translate

      [23] http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-translate-flag

    richard: make comments on general direction
    ... interesting question from felix

    <fsasaki> still in a meeting - saw your reply mail, richard -
    sorry, didn't have time to look into it yet

    richard: the situation is "you can say, do translate this
    element and don't translate this element"
    ... ITS by default if translate is on, you translate element
    contents but not attribute values
    ... but some attribute values contain natural language
    ... causes problems not just for trnaslate but for other markup
    like bidi or language
    ... how do you handle when attribute and element contents are
    ... or if some require translation and some don't
    ... can't provide metadata about it

    <fsasaki> FYI, ITS is also considering to drop its own
    definiton of "translate" attribute *for HTML* and just refer to
    the html spec - question is just which html spec ;)

    richard: html currently says "if translate=yes" then translate
    element and all attrbutes

    <fsasaki> I think "html currently says" should be "html5.0 CR
    doc says"

    (we're actually discussing that)

    <scribe> ACTION: addison: ping HTML about how to address
    comments on translate attribute in HTML5 CR [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-221 - Ping HTML about how to address
    comments on translate attribute in HTML5 CR [on Addison
    Phillips - due 2013-05-09].


    richard: two weeks since published proposals
    ... on isolate
    ... haven't seen any comments
    ... ready for next phase?

    addison: agree

    richard: send email to html list "we have this document, please
    make a decision"?
    ... or do we write an extension spec?
    ... or maybe talk to robin about how to progress it

    aharon: give them a document that says what needs to be done?
    ... don't want a futher document
    ... another doc not useful
    ... bug open on html-next
    ... proposal to isolate by default on items with dir and lang
    ... don't want lang right now
    ... backwards compatibility issue
    ... commented on the bug recently because previous stance
    changed because of what I found in IE

    <scribe> ACTION: richard: talk to robin about HTML5 bidi
    proposal next steps [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-222 - Talk to robin about HTML5 bidi
    proposal next steps [on Richard Ishida - due 2013-05-09].

    Norbert: ran across our charter
    ... noticed that encoding spec should be LC by now??
    ... how to start?

    <scribe> ACTION: addison: follow up on status of encoding spec
    [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-223 - Follow up on status of encoding
    spec [on Addison Phillips - due 2013-05-09].

    <Zakim> Najib-ma, you wanted to comment on bidi

    <Najib-ma> I think the text (bidi isolate) needs some

    <Najib-ma> It is written for (too much) to promote the solution

    <Najib-ma> Some significant advantages/disadvantage are not
    well highlighted…

    <Najib-ma> That's it

    can you please send written comments so we can
    incorporate/address? (send to www-international@)

    <Najib-ma> Sure


    <r12a> please send very soon

    <Najib-ma> Yep!
