Description Felix Sasaki 2006-07-19 17:35:59 UTC
Issue #43 of i18nCore comments

The default for the translate flag is yes, so it doesn't need to be specified on <body>. A better example might be an extract from XHTML showing translate=no on the <head>, but overriding that with translate=yes on the <title>.
Comment 1 Felix Sasaki 2006-07-25 06:00:30 UTC
Action: working group to discuss and reply.
Comment 2 Yves Savourel 2006-07-26 17:36:18 UTC

Action: Yves to provide a re-write of the example 14.

Example 14: Defaults for various data categories

By default the content of all elements in a document is translatable. The attribute its:translate="no" in the head element means that the content of this element, including child elements, should not be translated. The attribute its:translate="yes" in the title element means that the content of this element, including child elements, should be translated (overriding the its:translate="no" in head. Attribute values of the selected elements or their children's are not affected by local translate attributes. By default they are not translatable.

The default directionality of a document is left-to-right. The its:dir="rtl" in the quote element means that the directionality of the content of this element, including child elements and attributes, is right-to-left. Note that xml:lang indicates only the language, not the directionality.

<text xmlns:its="" its:version="1.0" xml:lang="en">
 <head its:translate="no">
  <author>Sven Corneliusson</author>
  <title its:translate="yes" role="header">Common Expressions</title>
  <par>In Arabic, the expression <quote xml:lang="ar" its:dir="rtl">ãÇ ÇÓãß¿</quote>
   means <quote>What is your name?</quote>.</par>
