The Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Working Group is part of the W3C Internationalization Activity.
Mission: Develop a set of elements and attributes that can be used with new DTDs/Schemas to support the internationalization and localization of documents; and provide best practice techniques for developers of DTDs/Schemas that show how to enable internationalization of their documents. For more details, see the Working Group Charter.
On February 13 2008, the Working Group has published the Best Practices for XML Internationalization Working Group Note!.
With this publication, the deliverables of the Working Group have been completed and published, and no further work remains to be done, except errata handling for the ITS 1.0 Recommendation. The planned Internationalization Tag Set Interest Group will start soon as a forum to foster a community of users of the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS), by promoting its adoption, and gathering information on its further development.
For a list of articles and implementations see the Links page.
Every Wednesday at the following time, for about one hour:
Past face-to-face meetings
Issues Tracking via Bugzilla -- [Bugzilla List]
To become a member of the working group follow the joining instructions. Working group members are responsible for the development of the group's deliverables, so some minimum commitment is required.
If you are unable to make the required commitment to join the working group, you can still follow the work by accessing the Internationalization Web site, the public mail archive, and all public ITS documents.
