Hi all,

One of my action items from the last teleconference was to post some information about the work recently done about locale/language
identifier. This is in reference to the topic Masaki raised about identifying different types of translations (formal, informal,
etc.), basically some "cultural" variations within a given language. Some work in that area, I think, is being done.

I believe the last draft for one of the proposals is here:
http://www.inter-locale.com/ID/draft-phillips-langtags-05.html

A good overview of the different problems can be found here:

Additional links about locales can be found here:

Cheers,
