When I grep for "last published" I find that it is in site-to-xhtml.xsl, 
so it is not i18n yet.

The site uses a custom skin so they probably hacked the 
solution in their skin. Obviously this is OK if you only want to serve a 
single language. However, if you want to serve multiple languages it 
will need to be i18n.

I'm not too familiar with how i18n works in Forrest so I can't be much 
more help than that. A good source of pointers is, in particular the link 
back to the mail threads in the last comment.

We'd welcome your thoughts on how to improve the i18n handling.

If you don't get any further pointers in this thread try posting again 
with any new information you might have it may trigger an idea or 
another dev.
