But it's not exactly what I've looking for, I think.  The above link
is about localization of generated texts.

What I want is
 - two languages with identical structure
 - as single point of change as possible

For the website files, I had thought to do <phrase> and profiling on
lang.   This quickly gets cluttered, I agree.  But I plan to have very
simple website files, and only two languages (Norwegian and English).

But there is no way to do this for the <title> elements of <tocentry>
elements, in the layout.xml file, I think...?  Or is there...?
