If the js can know the referring page and that can be from one of supported NL pages like
www.openoffice.org/de/ it would be good to use that as well. That way someone from an English
browser who goes to www.openoffice.org/es/ and presses the download topnav button they can
start at their expected DL.

Is that clear?
