Umm interesting, I can see your point that maintaining lots of files
is a pain - but its just feels(?) nicer to put the whole text into
the template - rather than 3 or 4 localization strings around dynamic

And having one big file (per language) full of localization strings -
that maybe unused now... - seems a bit cumbersome too...

Maybe its just a bit more disciplined than I have been to date... ;-)

But I will follow the crowd.
