Localization issues

Support for different languages

Registry contents should be UTF-8
– Registry code needs to check this, and if it isn’t UTF-8 then either convert it, or reject it, or save the encoding. DECISION: Registry converts all incoming XML into UTF-8.

From Services
– We send data in whatever encoding we want, and clients need to be clevererer… or parser (SAX/LibXML) already knows how to deal wtih these things. We need to pay more attention to this… that was the decision we made… to pay more attention.

Languages: if the xml-lang attribute is defined then it should be maintained and saved in the database and returned when the service description is reconstructed e.g. for a findService. need to capture the language for object, namespace, service, service instances, and secondary parameters.
