script Script (TBX)

The @script attribute specifies the language writing script of a of the content of the element with which it is associated, for example the value “Cyrl”.


Like the @xml:lang attribute, the @script attribute is often associated with the <tbx:langSet> element, to specify the writing script of all the child elements in a language section. However, it can be associated with virtually any element to specify the writing script of the content of that element.
Use values found for “script” in the IANA language subtag registry. Do not use deprecated values.
Note: Do not combine script and region values with the language value. Use the attribute @xml:lang to record the language. Use the @script attribute, and the <tbx:geographicalUsage> element for script and region, respectively.
You should omit the @script attribute when it makes no useful distinction (as for the primary or sole script of a language). In particular, you should omit the @script attribute if it matches the “Suppress-Script” field in the registry for the language you used.
