I would prefer to have an own webpage for all languages. Otherwise we 
will have a hugh webpage for a little patch which isn't looking smart IMHO.

Unicode (UTF8) to ISO 8859-1 (Western European) in order to run properly on Windows XP.  The
script window does not show extended characters used in German on an English Windows XP, but
the scripts run correctly.  They should appear correctly in Windows XP installs set for Western
European languages.  This part remains to be confirmed.  See<>.

German won't be ready in the next hours but hopefu─║ly within this week. 
So, we should go online with the stuff we have.
