Here is a patch for the [[plugins/meta]] plugin. It adds the possibility to define the language used for a page, with \[[meta lang="ja"]] It doesn't insert the langage information in the xhtml meta elements, but defines a LANG variable to use in the templates, for example with fr" xml:lang="fr"> This way also allows to define a language for a subset of the final page, with custom templates and inclusion. This may be useful for sites with a few pages in different languages, but no full i18n. > Looks good, but the need to modify the template and include a default > language in it is a bit problimatic, I think. --[[Joey]] >> --lang=XX could be a setup option, with a default value, then the template would be >>> Yes, that seems reasonable. I guess there's no problem with defaulting >>> to en if it can be overridden in the setup. --[[Joey]] >>>> Yes, english default makes sense. I guess we should use the `$config{lang}`, >>>> defined from the setup file or command-line options to define the default language >>>> (`$config{lang}` defaults to `en` which is fine) if the html pages, and override >>>> it from the `meta` directive. >>>> — [[NicolasLimare]] >>>>> ikiwiki already has a $config{locale}, which is a full locale (ie, >>>>> "en_US.UTF-8". This just needs to be parsed for the lang. --[[Joey]]
