I hope it eventually works, it should as it can handle 2byte charsets

I've fixed that now.  I'm not sure how to permanently do this as it
comes from the generic webwml templates.

Language selection is broken.  I have no idea why its doing that as
everything looks fine with it.  I have asked on the mnogosearch email
list about this problem.
