No, i'm thinking of docbook-website files!!! (perhaps i haven't explained
the idea well enough).

Is a ready-to-translate text file to do the translation from the original
language to the new one, automatically extracted from xml files.
 It contains text chains and few xml tags.

I'm thinking of two different tasks: author's and translator's. 
Translator doesn't have to see all the docbook tags. The use of this
technologie makes it easy to have website updated translations  when the 
original files change.

I'm thinking of layout.xml, [original-docbook-website].xml and
[translated-docbook-website].xml files with a good Makefile ;)
