Hi everyone,

I posted this in the PHP-i18n list, however got no answer so trying

Thanks a lot!

I've never actually had to do this... But one idea that I came up with is using the browser language in taking a best guess at what language to display... In other words, if the user's browser language is set to Chinese, you can be fairly certain they read Chinese :)

And now that I typed that out, I realize that may not be what you are really looking for... And that's when we get into the part where I can't help alot because I've never had to do it :)

So good luck! :)
