Greek Translation

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I've just created a greek translation for the Vanilla and tried to apply it in one of my installation but it didn't seem to work. All characters appeared as question marks and I had to set language to NONE to restore the functionality of the site.
I've change this parameter
$Context->Dictionary['XMLLang'] = 'el';
in the "definitions.php" file but no good...Any other advices????

    I just did a quick hunt, I think you want:
    $Context->Dictionary['XMLLang'] = 'el-Latn';
    to render correctly. Otherwise try el-GR

    First of all thanx for the answer. I tried both solutions but didn't work. The page is full of Questionmarked characters.

    "this line is from headers.php file. i hope this works. you all guys have version 1.0? header ("content-type:text/html;charset=utf-8");" taken from this thread: You may need to change the charset

    I didn't think about changing the charset in header.php...propably that's the problem. I will try it and get back to you!

    I've found that line of code in file "settings.php", that probably causes the problem of the Greek characters:
    $Configuration['CHARSET'] = 'utf-8';

    and I tried to change it in the characterset that I usually set when I create web sites in Greek, which is:
    $Configuration['CHARSET'] = 'iso-8859-7';

    But when I did that I got the following error message all over the page...
    Warning: htmlspecialchars(): charset `iso-8859-7' not supported, assuming iso-8859-1 in /hsphere/local/home/dummwiam/ on line 370
