I was wondering if there are any formal connections between efforts 
at WWW internationalization (where I assume language and character 
sets are the main focus) and localization with countries?

I am researching how geography can made an attribute for defining 
"digital crossroads" for community conferencing from the block club 
and neighborhood on up.  I am also following meta tag conversations 
and see some geographical attributes emerging.

Does anyone have any comment and is this group the appropriate W3 
group to take up such issues?
