Description Antti Andreimann 1999-06-02 21:08:35 EDT
Netscape 4.51 and later have problems with baltic codepages.
Specifically with windows-1257 and iso-8859-4. When you
go to a web page that has one of those character sets you
will see a screen filled with question marks. It's very
annoying. The temporary workaround by
Ville Hallik <Ville.Hallik@mail.ee> is to edit netscape
binary with sed and replace the strings corresponding to
faulty codepages with bogus ones. In a strange way there
are no problems with Cp1257 codepage.
Use enclosed script for temporary workaround.

do you have a sample web page that we can use as an example?
Comment 3 Antti Andreimann 1999-06-29 05:30:59 EDT
Sure: Go to http://www.mail.ee or http://www.it.ee
Comment 4 Jay Turner 1999-06-29 07:15:59 EDT
Verified in test lab using http://www.mail.ee with Netscape 4.61.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-18 17:23:59 EDT
While netscape is broken, we really can't sed the binary as
a matter of course.
