   David: Computer Weekly couple of weeks ago ran article saying that
   people should learn XHTML and pointing to the W3C site
   ... ie. move away from HTML
   ... CW is a UK magazine with v wide circulation
   ... interesting that they are promoting w3c site for learning
   ... i have involvement with amazon affiliates scheme, and question
   arose about identifying audience
   ... DC mentioned that should be careful about trusting HTTP request
   language and referred to i18n material

   RI: IE7 won't support the styling used in our article template -
   though there should be a workaround
   ... we can use until they can fix it
   ... lots of translations coming through at the moment
   ... also new php based article template available - particularly
   helpful translation mgt
   ... RFC 3066 is dead, long live RFC 4646 and RFC 4647 (aka BCP 47)

   looking whetehr there's a way to autoatically drop into a db

   machine readable
