    I tried again to upload it but the system only says no
    changes made... update cancelled. Maybe it's because
    I'm working with IE on Mac. Could anyone upload it for
    me? If you give me your email address I would send it
    to you. Thanks, Michael

    Ok, got the file. Will have to ask Steve Alberty about
    this, because he is the one that did exactly the reverse
    conversion.

    imho you should traslate "password" as "Kennwort" instead
    of "Passwort". "Kennwort" sounds more like a German word
    and has already been used several times in this language
    file.

    For german speaking persons it doesn't make a
    difference wether you say 'Passwort' or 'Kennwort'. But
    as always there are more than one way to translate.

    Still, you're right. If the word 'Kennwort' has been using
    until now it should be used all over the project.

    Developers think that it's better not to use the html
    entities. I only merged some translations for new messages.
    Thanks.

    Why???? It was quite anoying to see that page
    displaying fancy chars, and since The language libs in
    eny new version changes I would have to rewrite it
    completely every I upgrade.

    Please read the recent discussion about this in the
    mailing list archives:
    http://www.geocrawler.com/lists/3/SourceForge/11046/0/

    Which browser are you using?

    I just read the discussion. But still... as it doesn't work
    out on my browser (IE 5.1 on MacIntosh) I changed the
    lib to htmlentities and everything works just fine.

    Seems like I will have to do it again every time I
    upgrade. Never mind... I only wanted to help others and
    of course myself :-))

    Michael,

    is there a setting about character encoding in IE 5.1/Mac?

    There are settings to choose the language and the
    default character set.
    language is set to german and the characer set to
    latin1
