I'm not very familiar with Bootstrap.  Can you explain more?  For
example, does it require server-side processing?  For performance and
security reasons we have some severe restrictions on server-side
processes.

And for a language selector, we talked at one time about adding the
Google Translate drop down on each page, to make it easier for
visitors to get a page translated, but there were concerns on the poor
quality of the automated translation.
