15:17:17 [trackbot]
15:18:02 [Arle]
Christian: Before moving on, I haven't checked on the connection between canonical XML, Unicode normalization, and regular expression.
15:18:18 [Arle]
Shaun: In general, regex is a mess with respect to Unicode normalization.
15:18:48 [Arle]
..Example: E + combining acute, if U+00E9 matches is up to the regex engine and whether it handles normalization.
15:19:03 [Arle]
.. It is a huge mess. I would strongly recommend that people normalize their Unicode.
15:19:24 [Arle]
Christian: This is good information. Makes a stronger case for Unicode normalization.
15:20:21 [Arle]
Shaun: Would normally recommend normalization at every step. If there are chains where people don't do this, perhaps they have reasons. So I don't know if we say we MUST normalize, or if it is best practice.
15:20:38 [Arle]
.. I would like to hear from people who make non-normalized Unicode. I don't know who they are and if there are problems.
15:21:28 [Arle]
action: Shaun to draft text explaining importance of Unicode normalization and best practices on ISSUE-67
15:21:28 [trackbot]

ISSUE-81 -- I18N-ISSUE-207: Term data category and dfn element -- open
15:34:06 [trackbot]
15:35:10 [Marcis]
I think it was mentioned that this should be in a best practice document
15:35:25 [Arle]
Arle: We would suggest mappings, but not be mandatory.
15:35:56 [chriLi]
15:36:08 [Marcis]
The mapping goes one way but not the other way
15:36:08 [Arle]
Christian: Maybe this explanation could be in a similar place where we had it for ITS 1.0.
15:37:27 [Arle]
Marcis: If I recall, we discussed that the definition element is a sub-category of term, since you need a definition in HTML content, and only then can you use <dfn>, so we left with the understanding that it is in best-practice and not in the normative section.
15:37:53 [Arle]
Christian: Old section 5 was non-normative.
15:38:14 [Arle]
Arle: Question of prominence.
15:38:50 [chriLi]
15:39:57 [Arle]
Action: Arle to discuss with Felix the best location for this mapping list on issue-81
15:39:57 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-431 - Discuss with Felix the best location for this mapping list on issue-81 [on Arle Lommel - due 2013-02-04].
15:40:31 [Arle]
Christian: For ITS 1.0, we used "associating" with existing markup. May be clearer with mapping, to resolve issues of bidirectionally.
15:40:42 [Arle]
Arle: "Associating" is fine.

ISSUE-83 -- Notes on loc quality issue section -- open
15:41:58 [trackbot]
15:43:18 [Arle]
Arle: Can't point to EN-15038. Out of scope. TS-11669 is more relevant, defines expectations about translation.
15:44:08 [Arle]
.. Recommendation was to address quality in framework of TS-11669. That is be listed as an example of what the quality profile might point to, at a minimum.
15:44:47 [Arle]
Christian: I still don't get the difference between metrics and expectations, metrics, etc.
15:46:25 [Arle]
.. Explained some about it.
15:46:53 [Arle]
Christian: I think it changes the semantics of the pointer. IF you use parameters instead of metric.
15:47:13 [Arle]
Action: Arle to draft out the differences in more detail on ISSUE-83.
15:47:13 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-432 - Draft out the differences in more detail on ISSUE-83. [on Arle Lommel - due 2013-02-04].
15:47:33 [Arle]

15:48:15 [trackbot]
15:49:13 [Arle]
Arle: Dave is taking care of this. We rejected most of them as out of scope.
15:49:36 [Arle]
Olaf-Michael: Does anyone in the WG have experience with Indic languages?
15:49:43 [Arle]
Serge: We translate into those languages?
15:49:53 [Arle]
15:50:24 [chriLi]
Aside: We got input which possibly overlaps already for ITS 1.0 (see
15:50:30 [Arle]
Ankit: I have this experience. The issues they raise are valid, but as Dave replied, I agree.
