[Chameleon] language change

Along with the required SharedResource Declaration you will have to add 
the following lines just before you initialize the application 
index.phtml.  Here's an example:

$oApp =  new MapApp(); // this is the class in index.phtml which extends 
the Chameleon class
$oApp->CWCAddRegionalTemplate( "en-CA", "mymap_en.html");
$oApp->CWCAddRegionalTemplate( "fr-CA", "mymap_fr.html");
$oApp->CWCInitialize( $szTemplate, $szMapFile  );

This assumes that you have created mymap_en.html and mymap_fr.html.

To switch over, for example, from an English to French template you 
would add a link in your english template similar to:

<a href="javascript:setLanguage('fr-CA');">Franšais</a>

The MLT should handle translation between English and French for the 
widgets you are using.

I believe this should do it.
