This is just an idea, depending on what sort of differences you have
on your JSP pages, it may or not work.  As a trite and unrealistic
example, let's say that your design team has told you that blue text
will work better for your English-speaking audience, but purple text
will work better for your French-speaking audience.  Simply create two
stylesheets:

lang_EN.css:
body { color: blue; }

lang_FR.css:
body { color: purple; }

Then, in your JSP page, you'd just include the appropriate
locale-specific CSS stylesheet to achieve the look you want.  (sounds
like a really quick custom tag.)

I'm sure that color is not the extent of the differences between what
you would want in your French-specific JSP's and your English-specific
JSP's, but with all of the positioning and other capabilities in CSS,
you could probably do a lot with this approach.
