Hi,

Please take a few minutes to look at this link Chris Lilley
cites below - this document proposes an alarming abuse of 
language tags to include charset suffixes!

Cheers,
- Ira

Hello www-international,

My attention was recently drawn to this document, by the Center for Hellenic
Studies in Washington:

Developing standards for encoding languages and writing systems in the
editing of Greek and Latin texts
http://chs75.harvard.edu/projects/diginc/techpub/language-script

Its interesting both for the way it reflects current work (eg, use of RFC
3066bis) and the way it seems to diverge from it (either I don't understand
what they mean by a 'mapping', or else they propose character abuse and
don't understand that XML has a single document character set).
