The article starts off talking about the problem of mixing French, Greek, and Japanese, then proceeds to demonstrate how to mix English with English, then for the advanced class, how to mix English and Spanish, and even that is done by hard coding strings into the source code.

The LAMP platform is about the closest you can get to worst case scenario for anyone who does real internationalization for a living.

What the author should have said was that if you need to create an app for a small organization with no international aspirations, LAMP may acceptable, but otherwise you'd need to change to more professional tools like Java, .Net, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLServer, etc.
