I would be very interested to know what a "DTD specifically for the
localization
industry" would consist of. Could you be so good as to enlighten us? Please.

I am part of the LISA SIG group, along with your esteemed colleagues Walter
and Yves, which is working on the OSCAR - Open Standards for
Container/Content
Allowing Re-use - format, so am familiar with Open Tag and Borneo. I would be
interested though in this idea of a DTD for the localisation industry, as I
can't
quite get my head around how this would work.

TIA
