Hi,

I took a look at 27-June-1997 draft of HTML4, and found some errors
related to I18N.

I checked the archives of HTML WG, and as Lauren Wood has correctly
pointed out in <URL:http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-html-wg/
1997JulSep/0061.html>, example of including charset information in
charset.html should not be

  <META http-equiv="Content-Type" Content="text/html" charset="ISO-2022-JP">

but

  <META http-equiv="Content-Type" Content="text/html; charset=ISO-2022-JP">

And also, as Misha Wolf has pointed out in <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/
Member/w3c-html-wg/1997JulSep/0071.html>, some examples of attribute
value of LANG attribute in struct/dirlang.html are wrong.

You know, HTML4 is the first specification from W3C which can handle
non-western-european languages. This is VERY VERY important step, so
please show correct examples.

I'm not a member of HTML WG, so excuse me if these errors have already
been fixed.

Regards,
