Question about i18n/l10n Vs dwww, doc-base and menus



Hi,

	On the package doc-linux-fr-html, I plan to use a .menu file to 
register all the howto include in the package. (note that doc-linux is 
already using this system)

	Evenif, a menu section for HOWTO doesn't exist, I believe that
using a such section could be a gook trick at least till #114692 get fix.

	I am wondering on how dwww will deal with i18n menus. for 
instance I have :

    * Apps ...
          o Editors
          o Emacs
          o Graphics
          o Mail
          o Math
          o Net
          o Programming
          o Sound
          o System
          o Text
          o Tools
          o Viewers 
    * Debian
    * Devel
    * FAQ
    * HOWTO
    * Manpages
    * Text
    * Web ...
          o W3c 
    * XShells 

	I Plan to insert my French HOWTOs under HOWTO, but I don't really
 like this.

	Imagine a menu file in Chinese, In which section the docs should
 go in? (Chinese adds a problem of charset that we do not have in French)

	In fact I don't know if I should file a bug against dwww to have 
different menu according the language. I would like to see:

  * Fr
     Application
	°Editeur
        °Courriel
      [...]
  * En
     Apps
	°Editor
  * De
      [...]

	On the second hand it could be intersting to have a section per 
lang inside menus, at least for the documentation, so that people would 
be able to read documentation in the language they wish. 

	Let's take the example of FAQs. A lot of countries have their 
own LUGs. In France, our local usenet fans wrote the 'fcol FAQ' 
(fr.comp.os.linux.* FAQ). To register this document with doc-base, i 
use:

Document: fcol-faq
Title: FAQ fr.comp.os.linux.*
Author: <faq-fcol@linux-france.org>
Abstract:  Ce document est avant tout destiné à compléter les moyens
classiques 
d'accès à l'information et aux documents 
Section: FAQ

Format: HTML
Index: /usr/share/doc/LANG/fr/linux/fcol-faq/fcol-faq.html
Files: /usr/share/doc/LANG/fr/linux/fcol-faq/*.html

	Don't you think that it is better to add a such doc under
fr/FAQ since it's a French document written by French users for a French
public? To my mind this document has nothing to do under the Section: 
FAQ.

	If I send you this email, it's because I would really really
like to know how to deal with this issue. Do you have any idea on the
way do make things as clean as possible?


Thanks in advance,
