To be honest Greek was never really supported by the documentation system
debiandoc-sgml (which is nearly dead). So I always failed (many years ago)
to build PDF or PostScript versions. Also most documentation in Debian isn't
available in Greek (don't know why) so nobody complained yet.

If the fix for HTML is really so simple I will (maybe) try to improve it.
Thanks for your report.

Are you willing to help translating documents (e.g. the webpage or the installer)
to Greek? I think you could be a great help and we could guide you ...
