New article: xml:lang in XML document schemas

Read the article

FAQ-based article: When should I use xml:lang and when should I define my own element or attribute for passing language values in an XML document schema (DTD)?
By Addison Phillips.

מה שאתם צריכים לדעת לגבי האלגוריתם הדו-כיווני וסימון פנימי

Updated translation

Thanks to Oleg Gaivoronsky the translation of the article “What you need to know about the bidi algorithm and inline markup” has now been updated in Hebrew (language negotiated).

Internationalization Tag Set (ITS)

New First Public Working Draft

This document defines data categories and their implementation as a set of elements and attributes called the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS). ITS is used with new and existing schemas to support the internationalization and localization of schemas and documents. Implementations of ITS are provided for three schema languages: XML DTDs, XML Schema and RELAX NG. In addition, implementations are provided as fixed modularizations of various existing vocabularies (e.g. XHTML, DocBook, Open Document). The definition of the data categories is still in an early draft stage.
