Do you know the work of the W3C i18n ITS Working Group, see  
http://www.w3.org/International/its/ ? It is a possible answer to (some  
of) your problems. The working group recently published a working draft ,  
see http://www.w3.org/TR/its/ . You will see a list of topics we are  
currently addressing and planning to address in the future at "Work items  
in the Wiki" on http://www.w3.org/TR/its/ .
If you need more information, I would like very much to be helpful.

Cheers,

Felix Sasaki (team contact of the ITS Working Group)
