       Body:
I think you could implement this Cocoon's XInclude transformer (http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/userdocs/transformers/xinclude-transformer.html),
which allows 

So index.en.html would have:

<html>
<body>
  <!-- Include language-neutral layout: -->
  <xi:include href="index-layout.xml"/>
  Blimey, .en content.
</body>
</html>

The Cocoon caching system will handle 'dependencies'. Eg, if index-layout.xml changes, then
the next request for index.en.html will include those changes. 

With the xpointer() scheme, the XInclude would be able to address specific nodes in a sitedefs
file. A bit horrible though.. there was a long thread on how best to do a 'sitedefs' file
in Forrest:

Any real-life examples you could provide would be interesting.

Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: FOR-18
    Summary: support mulitple languages
       Type: New Feature

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Critical

    Project: Forrest
  Component: None

   Assignee:

Description:
In my current environment to develop static mulitlingual web-sites, I use an ant build.xml
and the m4 macro preprocessor to achieve the following (sample):
1) index.en.m4 gets converted to index.en.html
The *.en.m4 contains all language dependent text (similarly *.de.m4 for German) and includes
index.m4 that contains the page's content layout.
[(^\.)+].m4 includes sitedef.m4 where I define all global parts of the website (e.g. navigation
structure, unique content e.g. phone numbers, filenames, etc.). This in turn includes a sitedefs.en
or sitedef.de, ... respectively for global, language dependent definitions.
2) Dependencies 
a) upon change of [(^\.)+].m4, all depending *.*LANG*.html get rebuilt
b) upon change of sitedef.m4, build.xml, and alike all *.html gets rebuilt
c) upon change of sitedefs.en all *.en.html get rebuilt.

Obviously, I could use the exact same approach to create .xml whereever I created .html before,
but my long-term goal is to get rid of m4. Has anybody already put some thought into how this
would be done with forrest?
