TABLE-Japan revised Aug industrial output up 0.6 pct mth/mth

TOKYO, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Japan's industrial output rose 0.6
percent in August, revised data showed on Monday, confirming
that the recovery from the March natural disaster was intact,
but the outlook is uncertain due to the faltering global economy
and strong yen.	
    The figure compared with an initial reading of a
0.8 percent rise and a 0.4 percent increase in July, the data
from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry showed.	
    The capacity utilisation index rose 2.4 percent in August
from a month earlier to 89.0.
