Right now the i18n documentation states that make-messages.py "runs over the entire Django source tree [or project,application] and pulls out all strings marked for translation". What the documentation fails to point out is that strings are only searched for in .py and .html files. A few people, including myself, have had problems with not noticing this behavior. My suggestion is pointing out this gotcha in the documentation.
