>Hi All!!
>I'm sure I'm not tackling this for the first time. I have a web 
>application to create for an international audience. I'm looking for the 
>following standards, for personalizing the entry screens, validating data 
>and displaying in locale-specific ways. The items I'm looking for are:
>- Standards for phone numbers (different formats for phone numbers per 
>- addresses (the structure for street, city, state, country and ZIP code 
>for each country)
>- distance (e.g. km being used in UK while miles being used in US)
>- weight (e.g. kg in UK v/s lb in US)
>- temperature (Centigrade in UK, Fahrenheit in US)
>- Other units (any other units that the group knows about that vary with 
>user's locale)
>For starters, I browsed around and figured a site that gives telephone 
>number formats in good detail. This is at 
><http://www.wtng.info/>http://www.wtng.info/. However, for most of the 
>others, I couldn't find a standard.
>Would really appreciate the group's inputs on this. Since I'm not 
>subscribed to the mailing list, I'd appreciate if you can email all your 
>responses to me, i.e. <mailto:raja_coe95@yahoo.com>raja_coe95@yahoo.com.
