Summary: Correct italian language encoding

Initial Comment:
In Defaults.py

add_language('it', _('Italian'), 'iso-8859-1')

should be changed in:

add_language('it', _('Italian'), 'utf-8')

And the same, IMHO, should be done for all the other languages.

It's not that simple. Making that change also requires that the message
catalog and all templates be converted from iso-8859-1 to utf-8.

The fact that you have categorized this as a pipermail issue makes me
suspect that you have something like Apache's

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

in your web server configuration causing it to serve archive pages with a

Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"

header which overrides the <META http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> tag specification in the html

If that is the issue, you can work around it by putting

AddDefaultCharset Off

in an appropriate place in the web server confifuration or in a .htaccess
file in the archives/private/ directory.
