This is where you will find localization kit documentation on-line. Documentation will also be provided within the localization kits themselves. Theoretically, the on-line docs and the in-kit docs should be the same; however, if there is a discrepancy, you should:

    a) believe the in-kit docs over the on-line docs, and
    b) inform us that there is a mismatch between the two versions.

We'll fix it as soon as possible.

You will also find miscellaneous technical notes on various subejcts here.

Documentation is grouped into "pods" of related HTML pages. Select the pod you wish to read from the links below.
