The subscription email was, of course, incorrect and should have read

> public-i18n-cjk is a public mailing list, maintained by the W3C, to bring

> There is already a list where people can converse in Japanese about html5,

> on other topics at the appropriate point to non-native speakers and

> from time to time, post summaries of their discussions or  proposals to this
> list so that they can be considered and discussed more widely.
> The list will also provide an opportunity for anyone to comment on or ask
> questions about W3C deliverables or technologies relating to support of
> Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages and scripts.  For example, one use

> The intention of the list, however, is to also provide a forum for discussion of
> any aspect of W3C technologies that relates specifically to improving support
> of Chinese, Japanese and Korean.  For example, it provides a useful forum
> for discussion of ruby annotation or vertical text among people that span
> CSS, SVG, XSL, HTML and Internationalization Working Groups.  It will also
> provide a way to share understanding, cross-fertilize and leverage viewpoints
> and ideas that are common to all three Far Eastern scripts.
> 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-indic (for discussion of requirements for South
> Asian script and language support).
> The Japanese Layout Task Force members are already subscribed to this list.
> 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
> cjk/
> Please feel free to spread the word about this list to others.
