New public-i18n-indic mailing list

public-i18n-indic is a public mailing list, maintained by the W3C, to bring together experts in the internationalization of the Web for South Asian languages and scripts. By participating in this list you are part of the W3C Internationalization Interest Group.

The W3C India Office is working on proposals for Indian languages similar to those in the Japanese Layout Requirements document.  This list is intended to facilitate discussion of those topics, but also to provide a forum for general discussion of W3C technologies and their support for Indic scripts, including, for example, additional discussions on SSML and Conversational Applications - however the discussions should focus on issues that relate specifically to internationalization for Indic scripts.  To be inclusive, the language of discussion on the list will be English.

Similar lists that are also part of the Internationalization Interest Group include public-i18n-bidi (for discussion of issues related to Arabic, Hebrew, etc scripts) and public-i18n-cjk (for discussion of topics related to Chinese, Japanese and Korean).

If you are not subscribed already, you can join the list by sending email to with the word 'subscribe' in the subject field.  The archive is publicly visible at

Best regards,
