India International Program task force
This group exists to explore gaps and requirements for support of languages using South Asian scripts on the Web and in eBooks. The current focus is particularly on the Devanagari, Bengali, and Tamil scripts.
It aims to address the problem that experts often don't know how to tell the W3C what problems exist for support of their script on the Web, and the W3C often doesn't know how to contact people who can help when questions arise.
Some experts may go a step further, and contribute to a gap-analysis or requirements document.
- Bengali gap analysis
- Devanagari gap analysis
- Gurmukhi gap analysis
- Gujarati gap analysis
- Tamil gap analysis
