Chaps,

After (very) long discussions with Addison, resulting in my mail of http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-geo/2005Sep/0019.html  I have drawn up a new definition for i18n in which I try to capture the input from Addison that I agreed with.

Please cast an eye over this, and let's discuss at next week's telecon.

Thanks.  Please refrain from making purely stylistic comments, or asking for completely different definitions of i18n, since we are trying to close this down at this stage.  Only speak up if you have a serious issue with something.  Otherwise, we'll never be done.

Thanks,
RI

PS: Note that we already appear to have agreement on the localization definition - so it's particlularly the i18n bit I'm asking about.
