Hello Han,

Having investigated further, there were two differences in the database:

- http://www.w3china.org/translation/xmlbase20010627_cn.htm was submitted  
as http://xmlbase.w3china.org
- http://www.w3china.org/translation/infoset_20011024_cn.htm was submitted  
as http://infoset.w3china.org

We have changed those two to the explicit URIs. However, all three, namely  
these two (with the old URI) and the additional  
<http://www.w3china.org/translation/infoset_20040204_cn.htm> were set as  
unreachable in our system, which performs checks and every link that  
returns as a 404 is set aside.

We have re-checked manually and these are still unreachable. One of them  
came through once, but mostly they are unreachable. Until there is a  
reliable access to the files, we will keep them aside, meaning that we do  
not list them in the Translations Database.

Best regards,
Coralie
