Subject:    Chinese pages now available

The Chinese pages on the "Chinese XML Now!" site are now online. The Chinese FAQ, terminology and test pages are available in Chinese. The files are available in UTF-8 and Big5, with GB2312 to come. The site is (fingers crossed) all HTML-in-XML, using voyager, so you can use the site as general XML test pages too. See:

We are currently working on a project which will put up to 100 meg of Chinese text online in XML (TEI) and perhaps with some kind of Xpointer linkability, too.

The site is still aimed at Western developers, but will gradually move to catering to Chinese developers after products support Chinese better. We have had pretty good response from many developers so far.

If you want to test your product, a good file to use is

which has almost all the Chinese tests rolled into a single file, with guiding comments. Please feel free to add this file to your test suites: if you handle this file correctly, your product is probably acceptable for international markets, as far as its XML IO is concerned.
