Some lessons from this section
What this means to me
For links to alternative language or country sites, translate link text into the language of the content pointed to
Make it easy to find the current page when changing language or site
Consider whether to use graphics or text, given that fonts may not be available on the user's platform for all options
If you use text, you'll need the page encoding to be UTF-8
Remember that pull-down lists don't support graphics, so consider alternatives
Find a way to draw attention to a list that is recognizable regardless of language, and put it in a visible location
Consider maps as an alternative selection mechanism
