TRADOS Export to TMX....

I'm not too well up on TMX as a standard, but when one of my engineers exported a TRADOS Memory to TMX (1.1), using TRADOS 5. the following bits get inserted into the segments

{\cs6\f1\cf6\lang1024

I looked up in the TMX specification, and it is known as "Unkown Tag". What is really confusing me is what does

{\cs6\f1\cf6\lang1024

mean?

Also appears as:

{\cs6\f1\cf6\lang1024 </a>}

It could be in either the source or target segment (or usually both).

Will this effect the 'import' into DejaVu in any way (will it effect DJV's leverage)? Sorry if they are dumb question, but the TMX export was more complicated (to look at) than I was expecting.... is there any available resources to explain the contents between the tags.

FYI - I think the above TM export was from a HTML project (quite possibly Robohelp authored).

Thanks,
Ger Plante

Trados uses internally RTF codes to store translation units. The codes that you found simply specfiy which fonts and styles should be used for internal tags. Since other tools usually cannot understand them you might as well delete them.
