This seems to be related to "po4a.cfg": all pages from the manual have
a [type: text] attribute, except index.html.in wich is processed
differently according to the [type: xhtml] attribute.
As a consequence no meta information is generated for indexes. The meta
we are missing here (to print german and french letters) is:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
Maybe changing "po4a.cfg" on line 26 could help generate proper metas:
- [type: xhtml] en/index.html.in $lang:$lang/index.html.in
+ [type: text] en/index.html.in $lang:$lang/index.html.in
