Some lessons from this section
What this means to me
Think about how to cope with text that expands in translation
Avoid placing labels to the side of form entry fields, icons, etc, if you can
For text backgrounds use large images and 'sliding door' effects to allow coverage of text whatever the size
Leave expansion space at the end of lines of tabs
Consider how to deal with long compound nouns: don't make the column too narrow; warn translators
Look out for and lobby the W3C CSS Working Group to publish rounded borders and multiple backgrounds parts of CSS3
Lobby Mozilla to support the soft-hyphen character
