"The Linux Internationalization Initiative (Li18nux) announced today the general availability of the LI18NUX2000, Globalization Specification. Those who are interested can obtain this specification from the following: http://www.li18nux.net/"

"The LI18NUX2000 specification includes the best of globalization functionality that commercial UNIX systems have successfully implemented and compliments the functionality with extensions that will make Linux Internationalization comprehensive for all national and local requirements. By conforming to the LI18NUX2000 specification, application programmers will benefit from UNICODE-based multi-lingual capabilities in a portable manner across Linux distributions and UNIX systems."

"The members of Li18nux including all the major Linux distributors are very active in developing globalized Linux distributions that conform with the LI18NUX 2000 specification" says Akio Kido, co-chairperson of Li18nux. "I hope that a Global Linux distribution which supports multiple languages simultaneously will be available before end of Q4 2000."
