In preparation for today's call, I read Web Notifications. Here are my comments:

   http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/notifications/raw-file/tip/Overview.html


1. The presence of 'direction' each attribute (title, body) is nice to see, but it would be good if there were also a "lang" attribute for each. Content language is used to influence the display of Notifications (line wrapping, font selection, etc.). The language attribute should be a String containing a BCP 47 language tag.

2. (Section 5). It's a little odd that title is converted to Unicode before setting the direction, while body has its direction set first. Can those be made consistent?

3. (Section 6). The Unicode Bidrectional Algorithm should be referenced directly here. As written, it's hard to understand unless one is already familiar with the concepts. Rules from UAX#9 are referenced by name here, so there should be an explicit reference to it. Note that such a reference is included in the references section already.

4. (Section 7.2). Should normalization play a role in comparing 'tag' values?

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
