Somehow, I've missed the translations link. Thanks, Ian, I think that's
going to work well.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for the feedback (and support). I've just started processing  
beta comments that
we've received.

The translations are, in fact, linked from the right hand column of  
the tech reports. As an example:
   http://beta.w3.org/TR/2009/REC-xhtml-modularization-20090303/

In the right hand side you'll find: "translations" which links to:
 
http://www.w3.org/2003/03/Translations/byTechnology?technology=xhtml-modular
ization

Right now you'll get an intervening page since the translations pages  
are not (yet) under the beta. But
when we deploy, that link will take you directly to the translations  
for that document.

Is this what you had in mind.

Ok, noting that as part of a set of comments.
