Although like yourself I am unilingual, I do not feel that that all net
information must be provided in English. I have come across sites that
were all in Dutch, Norwegian, and German as well as French. I don't feel
that the non-English site is loosing anything by being in a `foreign'
language, it is me that is loosing by not being able to understant what
they are offering me. I consider it an opportunity to learn. In a world
that is growing ever smaller we should be willing to accept our
neighbour's differences and not expect them to adopt our ways.
