Bug#406228: debian-www: Links to http://www.debian.org/intro/cn should be language specific

Package: debian-www
Severity: normal

The links at the bottom of all our pages that link to
http://www.debian.org/intro/cn send the user back to whatever language
their browser is set to.

If they got to the page they are on by selecting one of the language
specific links just above that, that's almost definitely not what they
want (since by clicking on the link they are effectively voting against
their current browser setting)

If instead those links pointed to the page using the language specific
URL (i.e. http://www.debian.org/intro/cn.en.html) that matches whatever
language the current page is in, then if that's the wrong language, they
get to select their own just above, and if it's already right they get
what they want anyway.

Hope that makes sense.

Just to make sure, I'm saying that:


should have this somewhere near the end:

  ie stellt man <a href="./intro/cn.de.html">die Standardsprache</a> ein

whereas this:


should instead have this:

  How to set <a href="./intro/cn.en.html">the default document language</a>

and that should apply to all pages that have that link, with all of them
pointing at their own languages, for each supported language.

Cheers, Phil.

P.S. Credit for spotting this bug should be given to Gundemarie Scholz,
who pointed it out to me, but is unable to report it easily at present.
