Not a long shot at all, IC has been doing this for years. The record
that I know of is 7 languages and 12 currencies all from the same page
set. You need to look up "Locale" on the developer site.

Also, I was wondering how

[if type=data term="country::import_tax::[value country]"]
	<!-- Handling set to: [value name=mv_handling set="import"] -->
	<!-- Handling set to nothing. [value name=mv_handling set=""] -->

Then in shipping.asc:

	desc: Import tax
	crit: [subtotal noformat=1]
	min:  0
	max:  99999999
	cost: x .20


import	Import tax	[subtotal noformat=1]	0	99999999	x .20
