Google Can Translate Entire Web Pages

Here's another nifty new Google tool: Google Translate. It can translate selected text or an entire web page.

I could see this being really useful for viewing foreign laws on the Web when English translations aren't available. Of course you wouldn't rely 100% on the translation, but at least it would give you the gist. I tried the French Constitution (via the Constitution Finder) and it seemed to do a pretty fair job.
