Well, there are some PostgreSQL doc translation projects are running
including translation for Japanese, which I am working on.

If we are going to change the manual format and/or the build system, I
need to confirm it does work for Japanese as well. In theory because
the Japanese translation project uses UTF-8, there should be no
problem as far as the whole build system works for UTF-8. But I want
to confirm first...

BTW, are you going to propose a mega patch which changes all the sgml
files to xml files?

Best regards,
