Subject Re: i18n and documentation
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2005 00:09:30 GMT
thank you David.
When I get multiple language support working in one live site i'm 
working on now,
I'll spend some time writing a how to. I hope to integrate at least ten.
Will review previously implemented work to date.
Some time in January a how to should be ready.
