Best Practices for XML Internationalization

The W3C has released an updated working draft of "Best Practices for XML Internationalization", which has been authored by the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Working Group.

This document is a complement to the W3C Recommendation Internationalization Tag Set (ITS). However, not all internationalization-related issues can be resolved by the special markup described in ITS. The best practices in the new working draft document, therefore, go beyond application of ITS markup to address a number of problems that can be avoided by correctly designing XML schemas, and by applying a few additional guidelines when writing XML content in an XML editor.
