Dear WS I18N Task Force Members,

This is the first of a series of responses to last call
comments on the SOAP 1.2 specification that I sent in to
the XML Protocol WG on behalf of the old I18N WG a whil ago.

At the meeting today, the WS I18N task force went through
these responses to decide whether they should be accepted
or not, and coming up with some comments.

A list of the issues can be found starting at

The way we want to proceed is that I forward the responses from
the XML Protocol WG to the public-i18n-ws@w3.org list, then
we will follow up with some proposed answers, and if we don't
get any comments on the list, we'll forward these back to
the XML Protocol list.

For this first message, I'm copying the I18N IG list, to make
sure that people on the Core Task Force (officially responsible
for reviews) can join the public-i18n-ws@w3.org list or can
look at the archive to follow up on this discussion.

Regards,     Martin.

>Subject: XMLP Issue 263 Resolution
>The XML Protocol (XMLP) WG has decided to close issue 263 [1], which you
>originated, with the following resolution.
>The XMLP WG has decided to modify SOAP Reason element (5.4.2 in Part1)
>in the following manner:
>   - The Reason element information item has one or more Text element
>     information item children:
>       <env:Reason>
>           <env:Text xml:lang="en-US">wrong color</env:Text>
>           <env:Text xml:lang="en-GB">wrong colour</env:Text>
>       </env:Reason>
>   - The Text element information item has any number of character
>     information item children to explain the neture of the fault.
>   - Each Text element MUST have xml:lang attribute information item
>     (prefix of lang attribute information item MUST be "xml:").
>   - When there are multiple Text element information items, values of
>     xml:lang attribute information items MUST be unique.
>Applications can make multiple language versions of the fault text
>available using this mechanism. Applications could negotiate
>the language for the fault text using a mechanism built using SOAP headers.
>However we do not provide such a mechanism.
>We trust that this resolution satisfies your concern. If not, please
>contact the WG asap.
