Dear Jonathan, dear Tony,

Sorry for my late reply to this mail. Thank you very much for your review  
of the document. We will take your proposals into account and hope to come  
back with an updated working draft soon.

Best regards,

> 4.	Example 5 makes two references to a language spec of "de_DE" -

> 5.	Says "here are some document examples", but gives only one.
> Perhaps more will be added shortly?
> 6.	Section 3.2 lists, in the first paragraph, special language tags

> Dear Web Services Coordination Group,
> This mail is to inform you that the i18n core working group [1] has
> published a first working draft on web services internationalization.
> The document describes enhancements to SOAP messaging to provide
> internationalized and localized operation via locale and international
> preference negotiation. These mechanisms can be used to accommodate a

> variety of development models for international usage. WS-I18N also
> provides a general-purpose mechanism for associating a "locale policy"
> with messages. It is designed to be extensible (e.g. support multiple
> international preferences and locale identifier models).
> We would appreciate your feedback very much.
