Description Olivier Hallot 2018-04-02 09:54:47 UTC
The <object/> tag is now enabled in help files (XHP) and points to objects such as external videos, files to download or more generic objects.

The @data attribute of <object> may point to different object depending on the language of the help files. For example, an external video can have a localized version for the language.

We need to extract the <object> tag from the help files and place it in Pootle for translation and put it back in the localized files.

Reference for <object> tag:

Example external video:
<object id="vid_id61521568603544" data="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/3KC0ZdcA6s8?rel=0" type="video/youtube> width="560px" height="315px"/>

Example donwloadable file:
<object data="media/files/scalc/imtrigon.ods" id="ods_id61521568603544" 
type="application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet" />
