How did you notice that? What tells it so?

yes, tested quite thoroughly, platform is Win2K-English having
ISO-8859-1 & 9 support (and a bunch of code conversion tables),
with Cygwin 1.3.6-4 & its tools. No problem.

And I have Netscape 6.2, it renders .strings files correctly and changes
encoding per se.

In fact, multilingual capabilities of W2K is a bit mystery to me.
Lastly, I used vi through Cygwin Bash shell to edit .strings, and it
also renders OK (but I can't tell this is _really_ a text mode app in
W2K ;))
