l10n and i18n your XML!

XML 10th anniversary

Are you using XHTML, DocBook, DITA, the TEI, or another XML vocabulary? Or are you creating your own vocabulary from scratch, but for world-wide use? Then you should read Best Practices for XML Internationalization, a new Working Group Note published by the W3C ITS Working Group. This document provides a lot of information about XML Internationalized and Localization, and many examples of how to use the ITS 1.0 specification.
