hi Neelesh,

why don't you suggest your friend just to choose
another metaphor?

I've seen too many sites with flags as icons to
choose language.

I think that as a navigator can enter a site not only
in the home page (think of the search engines links),
so the ability to choose language must be given in
every page.

Given this, I think that the best way to let user
choose language is a simple combo box. This also let
you add other language without cluttering your site
with so many flags as an international exhibition

hope this helps
bye, andrea
