[Activity Streams] AS2.0: Section 3.2: language example issues [I18N-ISSUE-387][I18N-ACTION-469]

Hello Social Web,

The Internationalization (I18N) Working Group reviewed you document Activity Streams 2.0 [1]. This note is to forward you the one comment we had, which is tracked in our Tracker at [2].


There is an example showing three language tags. The language tag for the Spanish string is given as 'sp', but the correct language tag for Spanish is 'es'. The language tag 'sp' is invalid.

Note that it might be helpful to show a language tag with more structure. For example, you should show a Simplified Chinese item with the tag "zh-Hans" or perhaps "zh-Hans-CN".

Regards (for I18N),

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
