Description Yves Savourel 2006-07-18 18:47:11 UTC
Issue #4 of i18nCore comments:

Section 6.7.1: The explanation of the language information data category should clarify that this only provides for rules to be expressed at a global level because it is assumed that it would be unnecessary locally. Locally users would be able to use xml:lang (which is defined by XML) or an attribute specific to the format in question (as in Example 33).

The XML spec acts in a way like an ever present provider of certain global rules defining such things as xml:lang.

Discussed at .
Resolution: Agreed to go back to i18n core with the proposals at and . We say that processing of xml:lang is not a normative requirement for an ITS implementation.
This resolution should resolve the bugs 3468, 3469, 3480 and 3515.
