Hello, Web Notifications,

The Internationalization Core WG has actioned me [1] with relaying our review comments of your document:


Dated: 2012-06-27

We are tracking these items as I18N-ISSUE-161 and I18N-ISSUE-162 in Tracker [2].

Our comments are:

161: Notifications have no way to identify the language of their user-visible text (title and body). Knowledge about the language is often necessary for the user agent to select the right font or to pronounce the text correctly - see http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-lang-why

[there are similar comments from other WG members]

162: (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? [This is an editorial comment and minor]

Thanks and best regards (for I18N)

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
