great!

I like that it uses the same basic design as WAI cards. I think having the
WAI logo at the top and not on the I18N helps keep them straight. I think
different color bar would be nice (especially if we have others in the
future); however *not* necessary (assuming it does add more money)... and
minor thing, although I really like teal, it kinda doesn't look great with
W3C blue.

I'd suggest trying to make Internationalization stand out more at the top,
e.g.,:
* try putting "Internationalization" on a line above "Quick Tips for the
Web"
* try bolding "Internationalization"

fyi: I didn't see the "More at..." the first 2 times I read it! interesting.
think that's OK since you also have a URI at the end.

I didn't look at the content, but this one little thing jumped out at me:
I'm pretty sure that ie should be punctuated with 2 periods and a comma:
i.e., 

minor:
* align the bottom baselines of "Quick Tips for the Web" and W3C (that is,
move the text down a bit)
* could try increasing kerning of the "More at..." which would: 1. make it
easier to read, especially with the /s next to I and l, 2. fill out the
width of the coloured bar
* still looks like too much space before the URI in the last line
* Note that the text in the bar is italic in the WAI card. Probably don't
need to match that, though.
* wonder if you want to put (I18N) on there anywhere?
