and http://h3h.net/2007/01/designing-urls-for-multilingual-web-sites/#method-08 I want to
use commas and semicolons for content negotiation with mod_negotiatate.

Sorry for using the wrong terminology. Thanks for clarifying. :-) What I want is ideally to
use commas instead of dots with the multiviews option.

Would I have to create multiple type-maps, or can I spesify more resourses in one map? For
example, would I have to have both [../resource.var] spesifying that the English version is
at [../resource,en.var] and then have a map at [../resource,en.var] saying about the same
thing? (I do negotiation for format, language, charset, and compression.)

No, it is just a different approtch to multiviews.
