The Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Version 2.0 becomes a W3C Recommendation
"The field of established standards and guidelines for creating, processing, and maintaining multilingual content is quite fragmented. This situation causes that we have to invest in significant resources to adapt content for foreign markets. ITS 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/its20/) provides broadly accepted meta-data categories and representation rules that enable various language technologies from content management systems to automated translation tools to work together seamlessly in order to reduce the investments associated with reaching international audiences in their genuine languages." (Prof. Schütz, W3C Invited Expert)
