in htdig.conf should do the trick, as long as all the locale files are
properly set up in the /usr/share/locale/is_IS directory. It may be
that locale support is broken on your system. You didn't mention which
OS you were running htdig under. I don't have experience with locales
other than on a few Red Hat Linux systems. I do know that with Red Hat
4.2 (libc5 based), I could not get locales to work at all with htdig,
even after building and installing the locale files I needed. With
Red Hat 5.0 (and 5.1, I think), locales worked, but the locale files
were not installed by default - an update RPM for glibc took care of
