Sorry, I hope this is not really off-topic and it makes some sense
(even) for the htdig problems list.

Well... My setlocale manpage says:

       Linux supports the portable locales "C" and "POSIX" and
       also the European Latin-1 "ISO-8859-1" , and Russian
       "KOI-8" locales.

No mention about ISO-8859-2, while this is what I need. Till having the
_real_ (?) solution in the OS, I still don't know a better solution than
the quick hack in htdig. Right or wrong?
