Re: MIME use?
# How is MIME use developing in the non-English speaking parts of
(B# the world? How is it competing and/or integrating with previous
(B# ad hoc methods?
(B# Are there plans for RFCs to define new character sets, audio
(B# formats, etc? Are these being discussed on other mailing lists?
(BI'm not an authority on it, but since nobody else is answering I'll
(Bgive it a shot..
(BEarlier this year there was a mailing list email@example.com to
(Bdiscuss the character set (encoding) used in the Japanese networks,
(Band to register it officially. It was going to be called ISO-2022-JP.
(BThere was a draft written by Erik M. van der Poel (old address
(Berik@sra.co.jp). The last one I have seen was dated April 10.
(BI think this draft was also posted to some of the fj newsgroups
(Bfor review and comments. I have no idea what came out of it.
(BI think Erik was waiting for MIME to be an official RFC before
(BI have also seen proposals for a Hangul encoding with ISO-2022 by
(BUhhyung Choi <firstname.lastname@example.org> and a Vietnamese Quoted-Readable
(Bspecification by Viet-Std@Haydn.Stanford.EDU.
(BNow there is a mailing list email@example.com to discuss the use
(Bof MIME in mail and news in Japan. Current discussions are on
(Bthe use of ISO-2022-JP in richtext, RFC1342 encoded headers, where
(Bto put the RFC1342 header encoders when using MH, etc..
(BThis mailing list is in Japanese (ISO-2022-JP). Contact Yutaka Sato
