i use windows xp +sp2 english version. i have done the following for the languages:Start -> control pannel -> regional and language options -> languages -> i  checked all the supplemental languages that appears.

Reproducible: Always

It is a problem for the webmaster, because the page is being served with an incorrect character encoding -- ISO-8859-1, which is not greek. To display properly, it should be served as greek -- ISO-8859-7 .

Mozilla is correctly displaying the page as if it were iso-8859-1.

This is an evangelism bug. The reporter could send the webmaster an email informing him of the misconfigured web server.

(Note that you can change the encoding of the page yourself in mozilla's 'view' options, and verify that if it were served as ISO-8859-7 it would look proper.)

i still have the problem when i log in to the site.instead of some letters i see ???.in internet explorer the page is being served with an
character encoding -- unicode (UTF-8).
i try with mozilla every greek and unicode character encording but it doesn't display correctly.
Without a login, there's nothing we can do to troubleshoot this further. INCOMPLETE for now unless someone can provide more info.
