 In-browser translation services often damage placeholders and HTML, this
 is experienced in several ways:
 * Sometimes the HTML tag names or attribute names are translated
 * Sometimes the class names are translated
 * Sometimes extra whitespace is introduced into the HTML tag (ie. `</
 * Sometimes the placeholders are split up (ie. `% 1 $ s`)
 * Sometimes the HTML is re-ordered incorrectly

 We can fix most of that by using a `<span class="notranslate">` around the
 untranslatable text, which solves it at least for Google Translate. The
 HTML5 spec also contains `translate="no"` but I can't find anything that
 supports that (yet).
