Change RBNF format to be flat rules

Reported by: mark Owned by: grhoten
Component: numbers Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:
Xref:

Description

We overly XMLified certain areas:

  • collation
  • transforms
  • rbnf

We have converted collation back to flat versions using CDATA, and plan to do the same for transforms.

We should do the same with RBNF.

I like this idea. It will be easier for the Number Format Tester.

comment:2 Changed 21 months ago by grhoten

Though, I'd like to be able to use << and >> in the rule syntax. Using ←← and →→ is just not that practical when using the average keyboard, and that is not supported by ICU's RBNF natively.

You don't have to change the syntax. Look at what we did for collation.

  • Owner changed from anybody to grhoten
  • Priority changed from assess to critical
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Component changed from unknown to numbers
  • Type changed from unknown to data

Higher priority, since this is the last of the formats that should be de-xmlified.

Example of using CDATA

	<collations >
		<collation type="standard">
			<cr><![CDATA[
				&N<<<ʼn
			]]></cr>
		</collation>
	</collations>

While I could do this, this seems more like a tools and DTD issue that I'd need help with.
