Look through the archives of this mailing list, the problem comes up
every time in a while again. If your OS supports ISO 8859-7 as locale,
you probably will have only to set the locale to your ISO-thing in htdig's
config file.

If not, search for "asciify" in the mailing list for a work-around.

Hope this helps - let me know.
