New Working Draft of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0
A new version of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 draft has just been published as a Working Draft.
ITS 2.0 responds to current and future needs to extend ITS 1.0, that is: provide metadata (ITS “data categories”) also for HTML5, use the data categories for RDF, and add new data categories relevant for localization and language technologies.
In addition to various clarifications and smaller changes, this second version of the document provides several new data categories discussed during the MultilingualWeb workshop in Dublin in June (e.g. Domain and Locale Filter).
Please take a look at the new version, and send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org (subscribe at the archive main page). Use “ITS 2.0 WD Comment” at the beginning the subject line of your email, and add something descriptive after it.
Send any comments before the end of August. We are planning to publish a new working draft in late August, and a feature complete “last call” working draft in November.
