Not translating certain parts of the text

To ensure certain text is not translated, you can use the HTML format and put it in e.g. an html attribute. Say you're translating for some software and you have the input string:

Today's date is DATE, and the weather outside is WEATHER.

Then you could change it to e.g.

Today's date is <a rel="DATE"/>, and the weather outside is <a rel="WEATHER"/>.

and translate it with apertium -f html, then strip the html you added after it's translated.
