(extended) calling for review of update to Character Model: String Matching [charmod-norm]


As a reminder, the Internationalization (I18N) Working Group is seeking feedback [1] on an update to our Working Group Note “Character Model: String Matching” (aka “charmod-norm”). The original due date was 27 October 2020. We would like receive any additional comment by 2020-11-18.

The Character Model series of documents contains background material, best practices, and recommendations for specification authors, implementers, and content authors related to the use of character encodings and Unicode on the Web. The “String Matching” document deals with specifying content restrictions and the matching of identifiers in protocols and document formats for W3C specifications.

The new revision adds two new terminology definitions<https://w3c.github.io/charmod-norm/#dfn-user-facing-identifier> (“application internal identifiers”, “user-facing identifiers”) and a new section targeted to specification authors on “Specifying Content Restrictions<https://w3c.github.io/charmod-norm/#specifying-content-restrictions>” (Section 3.1). The Working Group would like comments about these specific changes; comments about other aspects of the document are also welcome.

Please send any comments as github issues<https://github.com/w3c/charmod-norm/issues> [2].

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
