It would be indeed very useful to get your perspectives on what
standards could help in getting mobile Web applications deployed across
many more languages and scripts.

I know Richard Ishida already provided some input on the bricks needed
to display non-Latin 1 pages in a blog post:
http://rishida.net/blog/?p=445

I wonder if this could be a starting point for something more formal
that could help in this space?

(I expect I'll get to hear some of your thoughts on this at the Mobile
Web Apps camp in WWW2011 http://www.w3.org/2011/03/w3c-track.html)

Thanks,

Dom
