No widget is called. Problem is, there's no schema information contained in
"context/homepage". What the template engine does is basically


and context.homepage is most likely just a plain string (like BytesLine,
DottedName, ...) without any interfaces, zope could adapt. This is why i
"invented" a tales namespace. Using the fb-package this example would do
something useful:

 <span tal:content="context/something_multilingual/fbi18n:text" />

'fbi18n:text' might be doing more than you want. If it detects a search
engine spider, it presents all language version in separate span-tags (incl.
lang-attributes). 'fbi18n:simpletext' just includes the best matching
language version.
