Review of http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/InternationalizedStringSpec dated today.

Was there a frozen version?

This document is in good shape and is ready to be published.

Important: The two characters use to delimit rdf:text values in the page don't 
render in my browser (firefox, windows).  I also checked explorer on my machine 
and they do not render there.

E.g. "The facet space is a set of pairs of the form ? f v ?, where f is a URI 
called a constraining facet, and v is a value. Each such pair is mapped to a 
subset of the value space of the datatype. "

Please pick a more common character.

As compared to the previous rdf international strings, you have moved the @ 
inside the quotes.  This may require a little bit of an explanation.  In fact, a 
list of differences with the existing version used in RDF & SPARQL would be useful.

Section 3: Why aren't there parallel versions of the length functions for lang 
tags?


4.1.2 does not use the (unrenderable) notation of rdf:text values in the rest of 
the doc, it uses parens. ($arg, "") instead of 〈 $arg1, $arg2 〉
