Hi again,

following on from my previous thread about my multilingual website...

I once came across a script for a layer of text that you could click on and off, but I can't seem to track it down.

Basically, I want to make several invisible text layers of the text on several of the pages in my site - or the main menu page at least.
I want to have a list of buttons which you can click on and switch the text to the language named on the button.

So I maybe want to have the identical text (all text) in each language hidden on the same page, so that when the user clicks the button the text is instantly transformed to each language as and when they select them.

The languages will be diverse - both Oriental and Occidental, and I wonder about whether I could use that WEFT text embedding so that people don't have to wait for font encoding sets to be downloaded - Chinese, Japanese and Complex text support for funny alphabet languages like Thai, in particular.
Or could it be set up so that they don't have to download text support unless they select those languages?

cheers,

Jack
