The Internationalization Core Working Group has reached consensus to stop working on Web Services Internationalization (WS-I18N). It was published as a Working Group Note for archival reasons and is no longer being progressed along the W3C’s Recommendation Track. The only changes to this document since the last Working Draft are the addition of the note just above, and a correction to the links pointing to what was known as the Olson timezone database, which is now hosted by IANA.
The Internationalization Core Working Group has published a Working Draft of Web Services Internationalization (WS-I18N). This document describes enhancements to SOAP messaging to provide internationalized and localized operations using locale and international preferences. These mechanisms can be used to accommodate a wide variety of development models for international usage.
