I installed OB 0.6 german translation and the Amazon lookup plugin. Everything works so far.
However I can't solve the problem with the german special characters (umlaute). As far as I understand Amazon uses utf-8. Just for fun I changed the OB settings to utf-8 and all of a sudden the Amazon lookup brings the correct umlaute. However everything else looks quite strange. From what I read changing the charset of mysql to utf-8 is not so easy.
Is there another way to get around this?
I found a hint here in the forum (htmlspecialchars) - however it did'nt work.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
