Subject Re: i18n problem setting the locale
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2003 07:40:56 GMT
Thanks Konstantin

I have already added the 'locale' attribute with the selected language to
all the links and it works.

My problem is that if you access the startpage without the 'locale'
parameter in the URL e.g.
"http://localhost:8080/startpage" the 'locale' attribute will not be
initialized, except if you choose explicitly an other language in the
startpage.

I'm trying now also with sessions (sunShine in cocoon 2.0.4), but I cannot
find a way to get the default language of the computer accessing the page.

Enrico
