After incorporating comments from the review phase, the GEO Working Group has published the article:

	Working with Composite Messages
	http://www.w3.org/International/articles/composite-messages/
	By Richard Ishida, W3C



The article looks at design and development practices that can cause major problems for translation. Designers must be very careful about how they split up and reuse text on-screen because the linguistic differences between languages can lead to real headaches for localizers and may in some cases make a reasonable translation impossible to achieve.
