I don't see a trivial solution.  I imagine you have to either change the
way you write the message, or have custom code to manage it. :-(

Why ?

Hmmm.  Is that because you have to have a different .gorm file for each
language ?  Then Renaissance allows you to have a different .gsmarkup file
for each language as well if you want. :-)

(still I'm not sure having a different .gorm/.gsmarkup file for each
language would help in your case).

Let us know if you find more on the issue.
