Good question mike :) Looking at the source for that, it looks like a 
pretty neat architecture, but not completely finished yet :) However, 
it contains the architecture to handle time/date/currency convertions, 
as well as text translation :)

So I guess what would be cool, is when we could use the 48hrs code, and 
the spLocale translations :) There should be a way to do it....

BTW, the 48hrs egroups entry looks like it has been active all along, 
so when the moderator has accepted my subscription request, I'll keep 
you posted on how things are looking there..... I would very much like 
to include that in our R1 release, if it al possible.....

Signing off,

Ithamar (back to print=5Fserver's last details :)
