Google also just launched a similar thing: You now get both russian 
characters and english if you browse to moskow.
In their API you can also set certain languages.
Not that we have to do what Google does (and thet have less storage 
space and rendering issues, I assume), but it's interesting to know 
others are also thinking about these issues.
Kind Regards,
Martijn Pannevis.
