It's good to support multiple localizations, but, nothing more than that. Masataka Ohta PS Don't you want to use your native language and several other languages with a plain text editor? Yes, I do, of course. That is, neither http nor uri has almost nothing to do with internationalization, because most of the internationalization is necessary at the plain text level. The only remaining internationalization is, perhaps, to have an http mechanism for negotiation of languages through language tags.
