Re: umlaute not supported any more(?)


thanks for the explanation.

What surprises me somewhat is that I do not use any other program which I have 
to tell the character encoding explicitly on my lenny system. E.g. emacs/kate 
etc. knew the character encoding by itself and displayed umlauts right away. 
It seems that they have at least sensible defaults. Do you know, how they 
figure them out?
