Comment 3 Yves Savourel 2006-08-14 14:09:18 UTC
Discussed during the teleconference.
Yves to propose some additional text for section 6.4.1.

Current text:

The terminology data category is used to mark terms. This helps to increase consistency across different parts of the documentation. It is also helpful for translation.

Proposed additional text:

Note: Existing terminology standards such as ISO 12200
[] and its derived formats are about coding terminology data, while the ITS terminology data category simply allows to identify terms in XML documents and optionally to point to corresponding information.
