Hello Paul, Sam and Maciej,

TPAC is almost upon us and I would like to ping you about arranging time for addressing open I18N concerns in HTML5. From the schedule, I see that our WGs meet on opposite ends of the week. We're together Mon/Tue and you're scheduled for Thu/Fri.

Most of the issues that concern us can probably be handled in a smaller session during our meeting Mon/Tue, although we'd be happy to have representatives come to your meeting Thursday or Friday if that's your WG's preference or via a breakout session. Our current list of "open items" are:

- handling of default character encoding [1]
- language tagging in HTTP, <meta>, and HTML markup [2][a]

We also share interest in finishing up the work on IRI/IDNAbis, but that involves a larger audience and I will address it under separate cover.

Would you please let me know how best to coordinate time with the HTML5 WG to cover these (and any topics I haven't listed but your WG feels we should address together)?

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
