Hello Rotan

Thanks in advance to Kan for that translation. Will it be Simplified or  
Traditional Chinese?

Please, make sure that Kan knows of the few requirements that are listed  
at:
   http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Translation/#volunteer

Particularly, I'll need to find a disclaimer listing (1) the title of and  
link to the original English document, (2) that the document is a  
translation which may contain errors, and (3) that the original English  
document on the W3C website is the one that is official. (Items (2) and  
(3) must be in the target language.)

Coralie
