Sounds good. I will subscribe to the dev list and will open a new thread on this topic. With
your guidance I can put some time helping to implement something. I'm sure I will learn quite
a bit in doing so.

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)

   Reporter: Pedro I. Sanchez

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.
