css is Cascading Style Sheets, so lets cascade them? :)

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="Website.css">
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="Website-en.css">
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="Website-brown.css">

The first .css file provides the universal elements (sizes, locations, etc).
The second .css file would be where I would put language elements.
The third .css file would be for color themes.

This allows the programmer to walk away from the completed application and let the artsy-fartsy people add their colors, illuminations, etc. Also it allows each branch office to create and maintain their own language files.

FWIW.

Booth Martin just shared a technique off-line, using the CSS "content" property. w3schools has some good references. The idea is to use external .css files to define language specific content.

View the page source to see how field labels are pulled from an external .css file by using a "class=" reference. Since "class=" supports a list of classes, one set could be used for traditional styling, and a different set for language-specific content.

Nice find, Booth.
