i18n xml

From: Lee Anne Phillips <leeanne@l...>

>Does anyone know what's going on lately with I18N in regard to the
Working Draft of XML Schema? The current version seems excessively, even
scandalously, Eurocentric.

I am on the W3C i18n interest group (*not* the working group) and I can
say that I am pretty impressed with the care that Martin, Misha and the
other W3C I18N working group members take when going through the specs.

I think there is always a running issue of whether internationalization
requires locale-neutrality or the support of lots of locales.  For
example, does i18n require that we don't use "1" or "2" for  "Monday",
or does it mean we should support many synonyms.

If you have concerns about i18n and W3C specifications, please let the
relevent W3C people know: i18n is one area where large-commercial
interests are not particularly contrary to the public interest IMHO.
