       Body:
Couple of comments:

1. It could work, but for me to test it I would like to get clarification on two things:

a) How do you enable the <i18n ..> </i18n> thing to work? I just put your code
in my web site and Forrest complains with 

skinconf.xml:369:9: Element type "i18n" must be declared.
skinconf.xml:370:50: Element type "token" must be declared.

b) lang="en", what does it mean? If "en" refers to the system language in the host where the
web developer is working (the locale setting) then this doesn't work. I am developing an all-Spanish
web site while working in an all english host environment.

2. What about the non-tokenized strings like "Search"?

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
 Components: 
             Skins (general issues)
   Versions:
             0.7-dev

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Pedro I. Sanchez

    Created: Thu, 26 May 2005 10:49 AM
    Updated: Thu, 26 May 2005 2:26 PM
Environment: N/A

Description:
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.
