temp.langmenu = COA
temp.langmenu {
    10 = TEXT
    10 {
        value = <img src="fileadmin/images/deutsch.gif" border=0>
        wrap = <td valign="bottom">|</td>
        typolink {
            addQueryString = 1
            parameter.dataWrap = http://www.xposign.de/{TSFE:id}.0.html
    20 = TEXT
    20 {
        value = <img src="fileadmin/images/english.gif" border=0>
        wrap = <td valign="bottom">|</td>
        typolink {
            addQueryString = 1
            parameter.dataWrap = http://www.xposign.com/{TSFE:id}.0.html
