The Arabic and Chinese are possibly graphic based because not all
computers have all language libraries loaded.
In this manner, those persons that do not have the relevant language
loaded can still view the foreign pictograph character based language.
Until we all use Chrome (automatically translating) or all computers
have all language character sets installed (a bit wasteful) I'm afraid
compliance with WAG 2.0 although desirable may be a little bit difficult
to ubiquitously logistically achieve.
However, I was impressed with the speed of response from Kerry...
Our Government does care and does respond to input from it's citizens.
Well done Canberra.
So, on that basis... We don't want the filter, don't need ACTA and do
need the NBN... Thanks in advance...
