[gopher] Re: OverbiteFF build 1291

I don't know if this was just in your email or you are doing this in  
the software too, but you shouldn't use locale codes in your  
translations unless you have a general version for that language too.
For example, my OS's ordered language fallback list looks like this:
en_GB, en, de, fr, la, cy, hu, gd, ru

if the software has a set of localisations as listed:

{ de_DE, en_US, es_ES, hu_HU, nl_NL, pl_PL }

then no suitable translation will be found. If however it had the set:

{ de, en, es, hu, nl, pl }

then my second item would find a match.

As another example, say you have two translations for a language,  
fr_FR and fr_CA, you should use either { fr, fr_CA } or { fr, fr_FR }  
as your set, so that someone from Algeria, Martinique or Guyana who's  
preferences are set for those regions can fall back to a default  
french. Otherwise they would get the 'fallback langauge' which is  
probably english!
i.e. the user requests "fr_GY, fr" the app has "fr_FR, fr_CA, en_US"  
and en_US is set to be the application's fallback if no match is  
found, then the user will get english.
