It is now officially winter and the cold weather outside makes it a good time for those indoor projects. Something a lot of sites have been meaning to do is to implement globalization. Thankfully we have Ken Westin to write a great article about how to implement Web Globalization On A Local Budget. Ken takes us through the ins and outs of offering translated versions of a web pages as well as the localization of content. All of this can, in fact, be done on a shoestring budget. It’s time to start thinking worldwide for the Web. See you next week with another great issue.

It appears that our good friend, Dave Shea, is looking for work. If you know of a full-time web design gig in the Vancouver, B.C., Canada area, please let him know. For the record, I consider Dave one of the foremost CSS experts in the industry.
