I am using IIS. I presume I can get the default locale from the browser
using ASP and VBScript? Does anyone know?

  What technology are you using for your site.

  I am using JAVA Servlets, and yes, you can ask the HTTPRequest for either
the current default locale for the browser (getLocale()) or an enumeration
of locale choices set in the browser(getLocales()).

    We have a website that uses a simple "language menu" that allows the
user to select a language which will then load a new page in that language.

    My question is, can the server automatically send out a page in the
language set in the user's browser preferences.

    I hope this is appropriate for this list.



    ps. We use IIS
