I18n Sensitive Processing with XQuery and XSLT
Intended Audience: Content Developers, Web Administrators, Web Designers, People who want to process i18n-sensitive XML data with i18n-relevant processing features
Session Level: Intermediate
Purpose: enable the audience to use XQuery and XSLT for i18n sensitive processing and make them aware of i18n aspects of XQuery and XSLT which have to be handled carefully.
In recent years, the W3C has worked on 17 (!) documents which deal with the XML query language "XQuery" and the transformation language for XML documents "XSLT 2.0", henceforth noted as "QT". This year, the core of QT specifications will reach the status of a "Recommendation", i.e. a stable specification.
QT has a lot of i18n related features. But due to its complexity, specific parts of the design of QT have to be taken into account. This tutorial will give an overview of the QT architecture, the QT processing model, and describe i18n specific features for the input, processing and output of XML data.
Topics covered include:
Benefits for the audience:
Benefits in general: QT is an indispensable part of XML processing architectures. Content Developers, Web Administrators, Web Designers and many other user groups who process i18n sensitive XML data will gain from this tutorial.
Prior knowledge: Basic knowledge of XML.
