JEIDA on mailing list and JEIDA ack

  In response to Larry's question, I believe there are no members
of JEIDA on the cl-natural-languages mailing list.  In our
ack note to them we should mention this node to them specifically
as a contact point with our group.

  Which reminds me, I wanted to send that message out.  Please
provide any comments to my draft by end of day 15 Oct.  I will
plan to send it on 16 Oct unless there are unresolved objections.

Below is the draft I sent earlier modified to include our mailing
node.  Perhaps we should get the mailing node changed to
cl-character before advertising it?

-----Start Draft-----------------------------------------------

To: JEIDA Kanji Working Group
    Masayuki Ida
    Takayasu Ito, chair, JEIDA Committee for Lisp Standardization
    Taiichi Yuasa, chair, JEIDA Technical Working Group for Lisp

From: ANSI X3J13 Character Subcommittee

  The committee would like to acknowledge and applaud the efforts
of the JEIDA Kanji WG.  The proposal, presented by Shiota-san at the
X3J13 June meeting in Boston, was so well received it
instigated the creation of our Subcommittee!

  The subcommittee members are:
         Thom Linden,chair (IBM Research)
         Larry Masinter (XEROX Research)
         Carl Hoffman (International Lisp Associates)
         Bob Kerns (Symbolics)
         Duncan Missimer (Hewlett-Packard)
         Dave Matthews (Hewlett-Packard)
         Mike Beckerle (Gold Hill)

  Though, our committee will deal with various topics relating to
Common Lisp character support, the primary current topic will be
extensions to support the varied and multiple native character
sets.  In particular, Common Lisp should be able to support
Kanji, Hanja, Hanzi, Chinese, German, French, etc. monolingual and
multilingual applications.

  We have established a network distribution point for our committee
discussions: <cl-natural-languages@sail.stanford.edu>.  Correspondence
from JEIDA and ISO on this subject area is invited.

  We look forward to working with the newly formed JEIDA and ISO
committees on a language design which is supportive of the
international community requirements and which provides
for a consistency across varied implementations and machine
architectures in the spirit of CLtL.
