Good point Bill, yes we do also need to make sure that the docs pages
can be viewed locally from the local FS.

To that point, I suggest that we use the following naming convention for
all non-English images:

foo.locale.extentsion -->  rewritemap.fr.png

Thus incorporating locale, but still retaining the proper file extension
for local FS viewing.
