Comment:
We feel it is not acceptable that the markup proposed by ITS makes no mention of ways to define language for the content of ITS elements. At the very least, a proposed approach should be described in text, with xml:lang being held up as the most standard way to do things. Such text could say something like:


"xml:lang should be available on the span element, unless the format into which ITS is being integrated has an attribute that fulfills the role of xml:lang, in which case that attribute should be available on the span element." And similar for other elements defined for ITS.


ITS can point out that xml spec does define xml:lang in a global rules kind of way.
