I love your phpgedview and my family use it extensively. Actually, my dad is the main contributor.
Though, because my wife is from Vietnam, and I would like to encourage her family to contribute in the genealogy, I followed the model of Places/FRA to create Places/VNM. Though, I found that the Vietnamese characters are causing troubles. So, I modified the placelist.php and strings.js so the Vietnamese characters are properly handled.
All the gif pictures are original work.
I am not a developer nor a talented programmer, but just enthusiast and willing to help. So, I hope I didn't make mistake, but so far, on my website, everything is working fine.

    Thank you. Your changes work very well.

    The changes have been incorporated into the SVN version of PhpGedView. The attached ZIP file is for PGV version 4.2.4.

    Unzip the file on your local PC, and then copy the result to the server directory where PhpGedView is installed. Be sure to change the permissions on the newly created directory "places/VNM" and all its contents. 755 permission is recommended, but 644 might work on some systems.
