The boundaries on the web are linguistic. An increasing number of people have multilingual websites and blogs. However, existing blog software, although localizable, is designed with the monolingual author/reader in mind. HTML specs are designed mainly for monolingual web pages.

- Interface for the reader
- Authoring process
- (And a fourth: integration in specific blogging tools)
