  I guess that depends on several factors.  Here, I have
something more like this:

      <title i18n="main.title"/>
      <body>body text</body>

with somewhere else:

      <l10n xml:lang="EN">
        <entry name="main.title">Something</entry>
      <l10n xml:lang="FR">
        <entry name="main.title">Quelque chose</entry>

  I think I described this on the XSL List at Mulberry Tech. a few
months ago, if you're interested.
