This is very true. I saw a programming language once that
used Japanese for keywords... even the Japanese folk found it
a bit hard to deal with. Japanese programmers
(and for that matter, programmers in general) use their
native language for variable names, even in languages that do
not support their encoding (Japanese programmers use Romanji).
The same is true for markup.
