Hello Olle,

Some quick answers - I'm not at work this week and will be travelling next, so you have some time still.

I tend to shorten titles in the 'on this page' links, although the full title is usually available via a mouseover, so that should explain the mismatch.

Not necessarily.  Some people translate.  Note, however, that the translations specify that comments must be made in English. (See http://www.w3.org/International/2004/06/translation-text )

No it shouldn't.  Thanks for pointing out.
