When OmegaT creates targets with tags, it should automatically run
"Validate tags".

If the project only contains (x)html files:
"Some of your files tags have been altered, the target (x)html may be
corrupted"
Check chapter "nb" of the manual for formatted files editing.
ignore alert|verify tags|cancel target creation

If the project contains OD/SX* files:
"Some of your files tags have been altered, the target OD/SX* files are
corrupted"
Check chapter "nb" of the manual for formatted files editing.
ignore alert|verify tags|cancel target creation

That will avoid a lot of pseudo bug reports like we had recently and that
is a user friendly feature that should not cost much programming time
and save a lot of trial/error testing time on the user side.

Besides, the "validate tags" function should still be available for
verification during the translation process.

    Where would these warnings need to be displayed?
    If in a separate popup, that would become irritating rather
    quickly.

    a simple alert window with a check box for "don't show this anymore". newomers are the ones who are the most affected by this. once
    they understand what is at stake they'll get use to the validation process and dismiss the window.

    + the tag coloring in the validation window: absolutely necessary feature.

    Fixed in SVN (/trunk).

    There's a new option in Options > Tag Validation:
    Do not allow creating translated documents with tag issues.

    If checked, when trying to create translated documents while there is a tag issue, the tag validation window opens and the translated documents are not created.

    There is now an option in Tag Validation:
    Do not allow creating translated documents with tag issues.

    If tag issues are found when using Create Translated Documents, the tag validation window opens.

    Implemented in the released version 3.0.0 of OmegaT.
