        1.    Jeffrey Good, LSA letter to ANSI about Open Document Standards


Message 1: LSA letter to ANSI about Open Document Standards
Date: 28-Feb-2007
From: Jeffrey Good <jcgoodbuffalo.edu>
Subject: LSA letter to ANSI about Open Document Standards


The LSA recently sent a letter to the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) regarding the use of language codes in the Office Open XML (OOXML)
document format, which is being proposed as an ISO standard. The letter
advocates the use of the ISO 639-3 language code system in OOXML since this
is the only existing coding system which attempts to cover all of the
world's languages.

More information can be found on the LSA's news page:
http://lsadc.org/info/res-news.cfm

Linguists with a stake in emerging standards for language resources may be
interested in the issues addressed by this letter.
