There is no present intention to translate the glossary or the
other material into other languages at present. The hyperglossary
technology is sufficiently generic, however, that it can be used
generically for other disciplines, where , perhaps, English is not as
universal as in research biology. Also I can see this being a useful aid
to translators who may, for example, not know abbreviations like ATP.
(Many abbreviations differ between languages (e.g. DNS (DE) = DNA, SIDA (FR)
= AIDS, and electronic glossaries could help here.

Anyway, MANY thanks and the accents and other diacritical marks
come out beautifully in mosaic. I haven't tried lynx yet.
