Well, in HTML there is nothing existing. I hpe that in XHTML 2.0 (which means
waiting a while for implementation in browsers) we will see something like
the switch element that is used in SMIL and SVG, which allows you to set
things with different languages.

  Please excuse my laziness.

  I've forgotten what is the approved (universal) method of achieving
  multi-language <alt="">?

  A brazilian/portugese language site for the deaf. "centro de recursos
  para surdos" part of: The " School of the Future " of the University of
  São Paulo has linked to Peepo.com

  As the site expands we might hope to serve users across europe, but am
  unclear about how this is to be achieved.

  Is there an alternative to a multitude of separate sites?

  thanks
