[gopher] Re: OverbiteFF build 1291

Hi Cameron,
just had a glimpse on it and have to say it looks nice. Well done and
thank you.

One question, 'though. I usually have my locale set to en-US instead of
de-DE. In contrast to that there's a setting in Firefox's preferences
where I can set my preferred display language to de-DE or just de. This
affects how web sites are shown but leaves the UI untouched.

Would it be possible (or would it make sense) to use that setting
instead of the system locale?

Yours sincerely,
Dennis Schulmeister
