Hi all,

I was wondering if realize the following setup using Hippo. I would like 
to create some sites which target different countries in different 
languages, but I would each country instance of the site to extend a 
global version of the site.

So I would like to structure my content like this:

- Global
   - en
     - news
       - global item
- Netherlands
   - en
     - news
       - specific Dutch (country targeted) item
- Belgium
   - en
     - news
       - specific Belgium item

And I would like to create a site for the Netherlands showing the 
following news items (at /en/news):

- global item
- specific Dutch (country targeted) item

and a site for Belgium showing the following news items:

- global item
- specific Belgium item

Can this be done in any way?

If not, I think the best approach on this would be just having a global 
site and adding a multiple select to the base document template which 
you could use to select the targeted countries. Right?

Any ideas or opinion on the matter are welcome ;-)
