Chapter 2. NAVIGATING THE MULTILINGUAL I... > DON’T LET THE LANGUAGES SCARE YOU

DON’T LET THE LANGUAGES SCARE YOU

Foreign languages can be intimidating; the more unfamiliar they are, the more intimidating they seem. But even if all you understand is English, you’ll be able to manage web globalization just fine, because HTML, XML, Perl, Java, and all those other programming languages, standards, and protocols are written in English.

No matter what language web site you want to create, you can rest assured (for now, at least) that you’ll be able to navigate the HTML markup code. Not convinced? Go to any localized web site, and in your browser, select the option to view the page source. Try the eBay Deutschland page at www.ebay.de (see Figures 2.2 and 2.3), and look at the HTML tags. The content between the tags may be in German, but the HTML and JavaScript are in English.
