Dear Stefan, Translators

Not having heard any feedback in the last few weeks, I have proceeded to  
making the suggested change.
There will be [lang] prepended in the Subject when people use the  
templates e-mail that are linked from the homepage:
   http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Translation/

I hope this is satisfatory to all.

Thanks all for your continued interest and cooperation!

Best regards,
Coralie
