I would rather that you got on with the CSS.
That seemed to be your particular itch when you joined.

We were using that i18n fix as an excercise
for you to understand the core processing.
I reckon that we should take the easy route
with the suggestion to add a special transformer 
at the end to strip out <text> tags.

I can try that if you would rather get on with
the CSS.

Hmmm, i think that i18n works everywhere. Perhaps you
are talking about the idea to have it permanently
switched on for all processing.
