   Xml internationalization design

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm currently designing the XML to be used within an multi language 

I would like to know if there is any official recommendation about how to 
nest an element that offers multi-language values. This is how I would do 
this traditionally:

<title xml:lang="en"/>
<title xml:lang="fr"/>
<body>body text</body>

And this is an alternative:

<title xml:lang="en"/>
<title xml:lang="fr"/>
<body>body text</body>

The latter will lead to much less verbose XML but the titles tags aren't 
wrapped up in a single extensible parent. I would be very grateful if 
someone could point me to somewhere which advises on best practice here.
