> 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.
