Hmm I cannot use XSLT in my context. I can only use XPath. So I guess
I would have to select "en-us" first and see if there is a result, if
not select "en" and so on. Or could I "||" chain multiple XPath
//text[@id='color' and lang('en-us')] || //text[@id='color' and
lang('en')] || //text[@id='color']
