XMLHTTPRequest I18N comments check...


I have reviewed the current XMLHTTPRequest draft and compared it to our comments.

The draft reviewed:


The comments:


The following items are substantive to the I18N Core WG and I don't believe they have been fully satisfied:

Item 4: Case-insensitive matching. We suggested text noting that case-insensitive had to be done in a locale-neutral manner. This has not been implemented.

Item 5: We asked for a specific health warning recommending the use of UTF-8 (see our table). They didn't insert our warning and instead inserted:

  Note: Authors are encouraged to simply encode their resources using UTF-8.

This wording isn't very specific and might be misleading, since the encoding should be announced properly, etc.

Item 6: The health warning about header concatenation of headers with structure is not provided.

Item 8: They did not implement our request for some mention about language negotiation.

I've added a topic to next week's teleconference for this item.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
