Each site would still have to be translated (preferably by a human being) into sub-sites for each desired language and script. The embedded open type simply means that the site would never open with question marks or boxes replacing type but with the actual glyphs neccessary regardless of what computer you are using. So, for instance, if I am a Russian on a business trip to Greece and I enter a cyber cafe and browse a site built in this way, I would simply select the Russian sub-site from the home page and that site would appear in the Cyrillic script.
