Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-506) Do not hard-code site-visible message strings in skin files
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2005 20:13:33 GMT

helena commented on FOR-506:
----------------------------

The catalogue file can it support mutliple languages or
one cat file per language:
<catalogues>
<catalogue >
 <message key=""></message>
 </catalogue>
 <catalogue xml:lang="locale">
   <message key="key"></message>
 </catalogue>

I am not clear on the xml:lang="locale" attribute
 <catalogue xml:lang="locale">
   <message key="key">text <i>or</i> markup</message>
 </catalogue>
or how one might make each catalogue unique or the value of locale

the latest diff file for sitemap changes, there's no opening serialize tag,
it seems most of the entires have some funky nesting - missing opening tags/closing tags.

> 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.
