Checking the code of es-AR, we have

"Firefox Inicio" in the about:home page, and
"Inicio de Firefox" in the prefs.

According to Seth and Pascal, the latter is better Spanish.

This goes back to bug 551889 comment 19, and is due to http://mxr.mozilla.org/mobile-browser/source/chrome/content/aboutHome.xhtml#260 not being fully localizable.

The order is half of the problem, there are also languages that don't use ' ' as word separator, which might be affected. Not sure if in this scenario.
I guess we can put the HTML in a DTD. I'll look for examples and make a patch.
For which milestone would that be? (And yes, my zero of Spanish doesn't suffice to make a call on blocker or not.)
And thanks, and yeah, putting the HTML into the DTD is the common way to fix this.
Attached patch patchSplinter Review
* Moves HTML into DTD for more flexible l10n
* Bumps key name

Let's get it in ASAP and ping the localizers
