You are probably right for big sites, but we are going to build rather small
site (in number of different pages to user) so I still think all content per
page in one file is better for us. After construction there is not going to
be that much modification to site.
And why not use xml-capabilities at editing level too, separating one edit
file/per language for translator or maybe original language and language to
be translated and then combine the results back. (Hmm, how could that be
done easily, CVS?).
And I think in the future we are going to use some sort of database of
xml-content anyway.
