This is great news, thanks for doing it.

This mailing list is now been stopped in favour of
http://rdfweb.org/mailman/listinfo/rdfweb-dev so it's probably a good idea
announcing it there too (although this is cross-posted).

Thanks also for your foaf document containing japanese characters, it's
finally allowed me to test foafnaut against them, and I've discovered a
couple of bugs, and noted that ASV's limitations do affect it.  I can
however get a version of foafnaut correctly displaying your characters.  I
can't upload it to my server though currently, (there's temporarily a
screenshot at http://www.hackdiary.com/~mattb/jim/foafnaut-i18n.jpg , but
that may be gone soon.), there's also some other problems with it, which I'm
not sure how to reconcile.  I certainly want to support all characters
