is there any ideas how to handle localization issues in web apps? In many
cases we need either to handle localization on server side by filling page
templates with proper (localized) text, or maintain several site versions
for each supported language (or locale). If we do not use server side page
processing (jsp, cgi etc.), then maybe localization problem may be solved by
extending html features. Some sort of 'locale' attribute or additional
resource files may be used to specify localized html items or localized
resources to be used by html items.
