Can you describe what you think the problem would be with this propsed solution of extending

For example:

<i18n lang="en">
  <token name="lastPublished" value="Last Published"/>
  <token name="copyright" value="Copyright"/>
<i18n lang="??">
  <token name="lastPublished" value="???????"/>
  <token name="copyright" value="???????"/>

This schema allows any token to be added, so customisation of skins would not be a problem.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-506
    Summary: Do not hard-code site-visible message strings in skin files
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: Forrest
             Skins (general issues)

Environment: N/A

Text strings like "Copyright", "Published", and "Search" are hardcoded into skin files like
site2xhtml.xsl. When creating web sites in languages other than English the web developer
is forced to create local versions of these skin files with the appropriated translations.

Instead, the DTD for the skinconf.xml should be improved to allow these translations to be
specified in this file. This would make Forrest much easier to use.
