Debbie,

The implementation of the Language widget should be identical in CWC2 as 
it is in Chameleon.  Out of curiousity ... if you place the following js 
function in the HEAD of your template does it work?:

/**
 * set the current language
 */
function setLanguage(szLanguage)
{
    aLanguages = new Array();
    aLanguages[aLanguages.length] = new Array( "en-CA" );
    aLanguages[aLanguages.length] = new Array( "fr-CA" );


    bValid = false;
    for( i=0; i< aLanguages.length; i++ )
    {
        if ( aLanguages[i][0] == szLanguage )
        {
            bValid = true;
            break;
        }
    }
    document.forms[0].LANGUAGE.value = szLanguage;
    document.forms[0].submit();
    return true;

}
