Hi Angio Mar 22, 2007

I guess this mus be a special tag settings file.

Here is the description in Trados Documentation:

"Tag Settings File
Document containing information that is necessary for processing XML, HTML and SGML documents, including DTD- and schema-based XML files. tag settings files, also known as initialisation files, have the extension *.ini.

Use the Tag Settings Manager to manage tag settings files. Use the Tag Settings Wizard to create new or edit exist

Here is the description in Trados Documentation:

"Tag Settings File
Document containing information that is necessary for processing XML, HTML and SGML documents, including DTD- and schema-based XML files. tag settings files, also known as initialisation files, have the extension *.ini.

Use the Tag Settings Manager to manage tag settings files. Use the Tag Settings Wizard to create new or edit existing tag settings files. You can access both the wizard and the manager by selecting Tag Settings from the Tools menu in TagEditor, or from the Tools tab of the Translation Memory Options dialog box in Translator's Workbench."

"TagEditor ships with a tag settings file for HTML documents, HTML4.ini. This file contains all the settings that are necessary for correctly processing HTML files that are based on the HTML 4.0 DTD. Other tag settings files shipped are for XML and .NET RESX documents. These files are located in the installation folder of Translator's Workbench and TagEditor, C:\Program Files\TRADOS\...\TT.

Tag settings files are used in TagEditor during interactive translation and verification of HTML, XSL and SGML files. They are also used to store customised settings for the Tags toolbar and the Generic Tag Verifier. "

"To add an existing tag settings file to the Tag Settings Manager list:

In the Tag Settings Manager dialog box, click Open.

In the Open Tag Settings File dialog box, locate the tag settings file (*.ini) on your hard disk or network and click Open. The specified file is added to the list in the Tag Settings Manager dialog box.

In the Tag Settings Manager dialog box, click OK to confirm your changes and to return to the main program window. Alternatively, click Edit to open the Tag Settings Properties dialog box, where you can edit settings as required."

Hope that it helps...

Have a nice evening
