A series of specifications (see below for a list), dealing with
XQuery 1.0, XPath 2.0, and XSLT 2.0, are currently in W3C last call
until February 15, 2004.

The Internationalization WG is planning to review these specifications,
but also encourages input on internationalization issues in these
specifications from a wider internationalization community.

XPath 1.0 and XSLT 1.0 are very widely used, and the same is expected
of the upcoming XQuery1.0, XPath 2.0, and XSLT 2.0. Now is your chance
to make sure that these specs don't miss important internationalization
features. The number of specifications, and the length of each
specification, mean that we can only review them in a collaborative
effort. Your help is very much apreciated.

If you find any internationalization issues or concerns, please send
them to this list starting the subject e.g. with [XQuery 1.0]. This
will allow the Internationalization WG to integrate your comments into
our comments to the XQuery WG and the XSL WG.

For information about other upcoming reviews, please see

And these are the six specifications under review:

XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model

XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators

XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0

XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language

XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization

XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 2.0

Looking forward to hear from you,       Martin.
