      Dear Khemaramsi and friends,

      it would be much appreciated if everyone refrains from posting
      messages other than in English and Velthuis Pali. Velthuis Sanskrit,
      and Pali in non-Roman scripts are acceptable as long as they serve
      chiefly for illustration purposes and form only a small portion of the
      overall message. The same can be said for other languages and
      character sets.

      Message title should strictly be in English or Velthuis Pali. When
      there is an exception, please use at least English in the leading
      portion of the title.

      In Khemaramsi's previous message, both the title and message are fully
      in Chinese. The title is in Unicode, while the message body is in
      Big-5 encoding. This group serves an English audience, so a message in
      Chinese is incomprehensible to most of us. Besides, it also contains
      some characters rendered invalid by XML, and cripples the automatic
      update of the group's activity on the homepage of tipitaka.net.

      So much being said, I like to mention that there is a Pali group for
      Chinese for those who are interested. The link is:

      metta,
      Yong Peng.
