Two weeks ago, the state of Utah launched www.espanol.utah.gov, a Spanish-lanaguage site with info on taxes, health services, driver licences, etc.

It was a small site -- at just 10 pages, it was a fraction of the 400-page English-language main site at www.utah.gov.

But it was still big enough to draw the ire of several Utah residents, who objected that the site somehow violates Utah's law establishing English as the state's official language. The site was shut down within days, and now the governor's counsel is reviewing it in regards to the official-language law.

But others say it's just a xenophobic backlash to the hot immigration debate.

At any rate, it leaves Huntsman -- a former international trade ambassador who's trying to position Utah as a player in the global economy -- en apuros .
