public interface InternationalString extends CharSequence, Comparable<InternationalString>
Stringtype whenever an attribute needs to be internationalization capable.
Departure from OGC/ISO specification:
Added this new type in order to distinguish between localizable and non-localizable character strings. Not all character strings should be localizable; for example Well Know Text or code names should probably be language neutral. Since the ISO/OGC UML does not say which character strings are localizable and which ones are not, we have done our own guesses in GeoAPI.
