Chaps,

I have updated the editor's copy of 

Authoring Techniques for XHTML & HTML Internationalization: Specifying the language of content
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-lang.html


Changes are marked with delete/insert markup.

In particular, I implemented the new approach to signalling issues for user agents as discussed on Wednesday, ie. no baseline any more, just latest versions.  This has an effect on the way I present the summary of issues at the beginning of each technique.  I now use an icon for the UA if and only if there is an issue.  Actually, I think that's much cleaner now than before, as well as simpler.

I also eliminated references to the outline document - since we now have the new techniques index material.

***Please read this document and send comments by email before Wednesday***, when we'll discuss comments that need discussion.

We are close to being able to publish.  Main things to do:

[1] check that all comments received during the wide review phase have been addressed

[2] run tests on latest browsers and update results

[3] review the resource information provided against improvements made while doing the techniques index

[4] implement any points raised by you guys


Cheers,
RI
