Hi Martin,

Under "Work in progress" the level 1 bullet is "Internationalization Best Practices" and then the documents under it are named by
their second part: "Specifying Language in XHTML & HTML Content", "Handling Right-to-left Scripts in XHTML and HTML Content", etc.

My understanding is that the documents are going to be renamed. For example
"http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-i18n-html-tech-bidi-20040509/" currently titled "Authoring Techniques for XHTML & HTML
Internationalization: Handling Bidirectional Text 1.0", will be renamed "Internationalization Best Practices: Handling Bidirectional
Text 1.0". Is that correct Richard?

I'm quite confused by that too.

Richard: As a general comment for GEO: it seems to me that, maybe, we are starting to have to too many different ways to get to a
content and too many links. I don't have any alternative to propose, but it's starting to take me more time to get to a bit of
information on these pages than it used to.

I missed that one. Yes, it should be "Practices".

Maybe better examples for the "title harmonization" would be:
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-bidi.html
and
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-lang.html


Richard: It seems there are actually quite a number of "practise(s)" in the i18n pages.
(and, by the way, the search box titled "I18n site search:" on all these pages does not seem to work (broken link)).

Cheers,
-yves
