Dear members of W3C-WAI-gl mailing list,
CC: Martin Duerst,
CC: JIS WG mailing list.

Good morning.  I am Takayuki Watanabe.

I think it is a good opportunity for me to introduce the activities of
"Web JIS" (Japan Industrial Standard) working group 
before discussing public comments submitted by JIS [1].

As you may know, JIS X 8341-3:2004 [2], the first JIS in Web
accessibility, was published in 20 June 2004. 
Outline of this JIS was presented at CSUN 2004 [3].

The working group that developed JIS X 8341-3 was dissolved in fiscal
year 2003 and a new working group was organized this year.
This working group (Web Accessibility International Standards Research
Working Group), which chair is I, has two objectives.  They are:

(1) international standard harmonization with W3C and other countries.

This activity is carried out based on JIS X 8341-3.
As JIS WG wants WCAG 2.0 to be internationally applicable guidelines,
(i) we made a Japanese translation of WCAG 2.0 working draft [4] to
raise interest in Japan and (ii) submitted public comments [1] to WCAG. 
We think it is a good thing that a WCAG 2.0 that considers
international usage and fits in a framework of ISO/IEC Guide 71 [5] is
submitted to ISO. 

(2) national promotion of JIS X 8341-3.

Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.
