Dear Web Internationalizers,

I am glad to anounce that as of now, the W3C HTML validator
at http://validator.w3.org/ works for Japanese, in particual
for ISO-2022-JP and Shift_JIS, which it didn't before.

It only does so if the pages are appropriately labeled,
i.e. either the HTTP header contains something like
charset=iso-2022-jp, or there is an appropriate <META>
element in the HTML HEAD, according to the descriptions
in http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/charset.html#h-5.2.2.

This is just a start. We hope to do more as we go on.
Please try it out. Please also send us any suggestions
for improvements.

With kind regards,   Martin.
