Particularly:

http://www.sun.com/developers/gadc/i18ntesting/i18ntaxonomy/index.html

which is unfortunately buried under testing, but is actually a design and
assessment checklist matrix with supporting documentation.  We developed this
matrix in order to define what it means for a product to be internationalized. 
It contains a few specifics as illustrative examples, but is very generic in
terms of platform, content and prog. language.

I am working on moving this to a more appropriate place.  Also, if you check
back periodically, there will be more and more useful i18n reference info posted
on this site (not links, content).

Regards,
Andrea
