    Dear Unicoders,

    As announced at the International Unicode Conference in San Jose
    the W3C Internationalization Activity has recently been restructured,
    and the Internationalization Working Group (WG) and Interest Group (IG)
    have been re-chartered. We are sure that this will provide you with
    increased possibilities to contribute to Web Internationalization
    in the widest sense, and are looking forward to your participation.

    More information can be found at
    and in the WG charter

    The Working Group now consists of three Task Forces (see below)

    - The Core Task Force is continuing previous work: completing the
       Character Model for the World Wide Web and the Internationalized
       Resource Identifiers (IRIs) specifications, and continuing reviewing
       specifications produced by other W3C Working Groups.
       The chair of the WG and the Core Task Force is Misha Wolf, Reuters.
       See for how you can participate.

    - The Web Services (WS) Task Force is investigating the needs and problems
       in the area of internationalization of Web Services, in particular the
       dependency of Web Services on language, culture, region, and locale-related
       The chair of the Web Services Task Force is Addison Phillips, webMethods.
       See for how you can participate.

    - The GEO (Guidelines, Education & Outreach) Task Force is helping to get
       the internationalization aspects of W3C technology better understood and
       more widely and consistently used.
       The chair of the GEO Task Force is Richard Ishida, W3C. See for how you
       can participate.

    Regards, Martin.
