At the moment, it's limited mostly to Roman alphabets, or more precisely

Actually it's on the projects list I just updated. :-)
The place to start would be to become familiar with UTF-8 and Unicode. It
seems like this would be the best way to support all languages. Once we
have Unicode support in the database, it shouldn't be too hard to localize
for specific lanuguages. (I hope.)
Unicode information can be found at <http://www.unicode.org/>
A project providing UTF-8 translation <http://www.whizkidtech.net/i18n/>
I think the *first* place to start in ht://Dig would be changing the
String.cc class to accept UTF-8 strings.
Others should feel free to correct me. I'm not very familiar with il8n.
