New Auto-Culture Handling in ASP.NET 2.0
ASP.NET 2.0 comes with a new auto-culture handling feature to make the task of localizing your application easier. Auto-culture handling can be enabled for each page by including the Culture="auto" and UICulture="auto" attributes in the Page directive of each page. Once enabled, the ASP.NET runtime will automatically map Accept-Language headers to CultureInfo objects and attach them to the current thread (unlike ASP.NET 1.x, where you need to do this manually). As a developer, you simply need to prepare the resources for the different cultures you want to support in your application. ASP.NET will then do the work of loading the appropriate resources for each culture as they are needed.
