About localization of this build

The sources contain a kmeleonloc folder which permit to build a dll of ressources. Instead of "hacking" into the exe to localize k-meleon, you can translate the resources, build the dll, and put it in the k-meleon folder with the name k-meleonloc.dll. K-meleon will use it instead of its internal english resource.

You can make a language.cfg file to translate menus, toolbars and macro (as long as they use the new _T() function). This language.cfg must contain only a succession of line like :

"Original english text" = "Translated text"

The quotes are optionnal but must be used if there are spaces at the beginning or at the end of the string, or an '=' in the string.

Preferences depending on localization should be put in the defaults\pref\I10n.js pref file.
