I would expect either:

  i18n:translate=""

so that the string behind it ends up in the .pot file (and you don't
repeat yourself needlessly; also think what would happen when you
change one string but forget to change the other).

Or:

  i18n:translate="reload_this_catalog" 

or some other unique message id.

But the above code should work.

Well, using PlacelessTranslationService as i18n:domain is strange.
You should use the name of your own product/package.

It should not.  Do you have a way to check which browser headers are
sent by IE and firefox and if they differ in the language preference?

I have never seen that attribute.  From the top of my head, these i18n
attributes are used in zope: translate, domain, name and attributes.

No.  At least, I do not think so, and this grep in a buildout did not
return any relevant results:

grep i18n $(find . -name '*dtml')
