Best practices for Country location andlanguages on Global Websites (was Language Picker)

" ONLY using IP is dangerous."

Was the point I was (badly) making.

No matter how many times I tell "the internet" that I'm not in France it
still gives me French pages!

/stupid user

I agree that doing as much for the user as possible is the best
technique, but it is important to realise the edge cases involved.
Frequent travellers, corporate firewalls, immigrants less accustomed to
their adopted tongue. The edge cases start mounting up.

Company's sites do not exist in a vacuum.

Enhancements management tool for applications

I'm looking for recommendations for a secure, web-based tool to help manage

Nested Table Alternatives?

Does anyone have any good examples of alternatives to nested tables or
decent implementations of nested tables?

My problem table is made of rows of thingies and there are 3-4
property columns for the thingies. Now each thingy has multiple
widgets with 3 or 4 properties that can be added to the thingy. All
of the cells are editable because the user builds the table by adding
a thingy and then its associated widgets.

Currently we have a solution that involves the thingy row being
exandable/collapsible to show the widget table.

Any more elegant ideas?
