The Debian web pages use wml to generate the actual .html files. Wml
runs the files through 9 filters which allow you to do almost anything.
For example, one of the filters allows you to use perl.

The country tags defined are used to get the names of countries in the
current language of interest. For example, if the French version of the
vendors page is being generated, then '<Germany>' will print 'Allemagne'.
Pretty slick.
